Eldorado Canyon Trail

We decided to give this one a try in early afternoon. We ended up turning around due to fear of lightening… But we gave if the college try and did a good bit of it!

It starts with a significant uphill and seems to continue forever! Eventually you get up and out of the canyon and wow the sights!

Its a nearly 2k foot elevation gain, and i think it is the first few feet, ok miles..

The route goes into the trees and does some up and down toward the “end”

It definitely beautiful!


  • Watch the weather, go when there is no rain or weather
  • The elevation gain is definitely a butt kicker, but you can do it
  • Total mileage is near 7miles
