The Crags Trail
This trail leads to the Crags, a group of rock pinnacle formations. The trail is restricted to hikers and horsemen, so it is not as busy as others in the area on weekends. The hike is on the northwest flank of Pikes Peak. If you think that someday you may want to hike this Fourteener, a trip to the Crags will give you a feel for the mountain. For most of the way, the trail is covered with decomposing needles from the evergreens. The ground is moist and is easy on your dog’s paws. A stream is near the campground but there is no reliable source of water on the hike, so make sure to take some along. Your dog must be on a leash.
