Wednesday July 14th
Johnny Park & Pierson Road
Trail Leader: Cristian
Approximate drive time of 20-30 minutes (13.7 miles) to the trail system from Estes Park.
Pole Hill (Optional)
Located just outside of the city, this trail system features beautiful views of the Rocky Mountains in addition to a clear picture of downtown Estes Park. It’s important to note that the initial 500-foot section of this 8.4 miles loop is the most challenging part, with easier trails afterward to allow you to focus on the wildlife and scenic views. Sit back and relax as you tackle the trails with this loop, gaining 1,679 feet of elevation while overlooking the valley.
