This shuttle ride incorporates Pipeline Trail #668
, Kineo Mountain Trail #667
, Captain Jack's
, and Sesame Canyon Trail
. It is a great way to enjoy the outdoors without dying from climbing the mountain.
Don't take the old Jones Park Trail, it is closed and the fines are heavy.
Start at the Pipeline Trail #668
trailhead and parking area and proceed down Pipeline. Near the end of Pipeline Trail #668
, there is an intersection, if you go right you'll head to Seven Bridges on Seven Bridges Trail #622
. If you go left it takes you to Kineo Mountain Trail, which has a nice flow with a few climbs. This trail has a great set of rolling hills that sends you airborne almost every time.
Cut into the new Jones Park #667
trail until you link up with Kineo Mountain Trail #667
From there, proceed down Buckhorn
until you hit Captain Jack's
. Lastly, take the left to Sesame Canyon Trail
and continue all the way down to the High Drive trailhead and your shuttle vehicle. I think this is best if shuttled or you have about another ten miles and a few very rough thousand feet of climbing, the choice is yours.
Keep an eye out for hikers and people traveling uphill; they have the right of way.
