Colorado Trail Kenosha pass to the Beaver ponds

Colorado Trail Kenosha pass to the Beaver ponds


Distance:approx 6 miles
Elevation Gain: < 1,000'
Difficulty: Moderate
Dogs are allowed but this is also a bike trail so you might want to keep them on leash.

This is a section of the Colorado Trail from Kenosha Pass that will be heading west toward the Beaver Ponds. The Ponds are about 3 miles from the trail head. This trail goes along a ridge above South Park that gives great views of the mountains as well as south park. We may go past the ponds if everyone is up for it.


We will stop on the way back for lunch for those interested.


Carpool: For those interested in carpooling lets meet at the Fort Restaurant (19192 Colorado 8, Morrison) we will leave here at 8:30  am


Directions to trailhead : Take 285 s towards Fairplay. Just past the town of grant you will start going up Kenosha pass. At the top of the pass on the right side of the road is parking on the shoulder for the trailhead.(if this is full you can park across the highway as well)
