The Crags Hike

The Crags is a popular trail for hikers in the Colorado Springs area who are seeking to get away from the city, or for those camping or vacationing near Cripple Creek. The trail is well marked and the overlook has beautiful scenery. The hike distance is approximately 3.5 miles round trip.

How to get there: From Divide, go south on Highway 67 for approximately four miles. After passing Mueller State Park on right, make a left at The Crags sign. Then follow signs 3.5 miles on dirt roads to the campground & trailhead.

My hike with Jae, Lisa, James and Jason, using my old camera. We enjoyed a lot of fall colors.

Nice scenery photo.
My friends Jason, Lisa and Jae all were looking at the beautiful scenery ... and they were NOT posing! :)
The fall colors were wonderful! Autumn Leaves

  • Let's just say James had a little emergency and fortunately (for James) I had some spare toilet paper in my backpack to offer him. :)
    Large rocks surround the trail. The Crags is located on the western side of Pikes Peak.

    Near the end of the trail, there's an upgrade which leads to some magnificent views...
    ...it's a somewhat steep cliff up there so be careful.

    Ah what beautiful views!

    A nice of Chaya, who hiked with us.
    Looking way down, I zoomed-in on some of those yellow aspens.

    So many autumn colors on this hike.
