Description

This is the direct way to connect between the Rollins Pass (aka Corona Pass) summit and Eldora (via Pipeline Trail or Jenny Creek Trail #808). It skirts the old, collapsed Needle's Eye tunnel on the Rollins Pass (aka Corona Pass) road. The east half of this trail is rideable and has a stellar view over Yankee Doodle Lake to the south. The west half of this trail is a hike on the way up, or a white-knuckle descent on the way down.
