This trail serves as the main public access point to the Glorieta trail system, which is the camp graciously allows even during the summer. Please be respectful.

Need to Know

Glorieta is a private summer camp that graciously allows access to its world-class trails. Be respectful.

Description

From the parking lot, look for a faint trail that enters the trees on the far left (looking toward the church). Follow the trail down a short descent, through a field, and then settle in for mellow climbing. Eventually, you'll pass the bottom of Jagged Axe. A little while later, you'll hit the Jagged Axe Access Road followed shortly thereafter by the Chili Dog Access Road and Snack Pack. Pick your poison from there!

Dry conditions but in decent shape. Some minor technical areas on the ascent but easily navigated on the return back down hill.

Trails are in great shape. Flowers are out. Air is thin. 7mi — 1h 30m
