Near mile 4 of Teller County Road 62
, the Putney Gulch Trail begins on the western side of the road.
This newly-crafted singletrack climbs 300 feet in 0.5 miles with many technical obstacles along the climb. Not enough to have to walk, but certainly enough to keep it interesting and enjoyable.
The trail winds through aspen and pines with views towards the western slopes of Pike's Peak.
The descent is equally as technical and enjoyable.
