The Crags - Teller County
Aliases: Crags Campground
Ownership: None Listed
Description: This relatively easy two-mile trail on the west side of Pikes Peak affords a spectacular scenic climax with only a relatively easy 600-foot climb. It is also, perhaps, the most reliable spot in Teller County for Clark's Nutcracker and Gray Jay (the latter extremely tame, even by normal standards for this bold species). Other common montane species, including Red-naped Sapsucker, can be relatively easy to locate here.

Habitat: Mixed Conifer Forest
Directions: Take US 24 to the town of Divide; turn left (south) on CO 67 and head 4.1 miles to a left turn marked with a Crags Campground sign. Follow this sometimes steep and narrow dirt road (CR 62, which becomes FR 383) 3 miles to the Crags Campground. You can park for free in the pullout on the right, or you can pay the campground fee and take the campground road for approximately a quarter of a mile to a small parking lot at the trailhead.
