From Teller County Road 62
, the Crags Trail begins on the eastern side.
There are several steep switchbacks that give way to a gentle ride after 0.3 miles for the majority of the trail. The Crags formations, large granite towers, can be appreciated above the trail.
Near the end of the trail, at mile 2.2, a steep climb leads to the top of the trail with views eastward towards Pike's Peak and northward toward the Catamount reservoirs.
