Elk Park Trail #652 is a 4.85 mile one way hike with 358 feet accumulated elevation gain. Located 15 miles west of Colorado Springs Colorado. September and June are the best months to enjoy this hike.


A marvelous view of the peak's rugged north face and surrounding mountains and valleys spreads out below this timberline viewpoint. A 5.2 mile trail following an old road heads southeast from here and drops into North Pit, an abrupt glacier-carved cirque. This trail connects to Barr Trail and Barr Camp. This is a great photo opportunity area.
