Alvarado Campground is a 0.7 mile lightly trafficked out and back trail located near Westcliffe, Colorado that features a great forest setting and is good for all skill levels. The trail is primarily used for walking and camping and is best used from June until September.
Take Hwy. 69 south of Westcliff to Schoolfield Rd. there is a sign, Alvarado Campground, follow the road west to the campground.
Very good ski up to Rainbow Trail and then south for a ways. Luckily someone had been up through the snow several days before as it is not marked in winter. No snowmobile activity evident!
This is a nice campground if you want to get a head start to the hikes that start from the trailhead just above the campground.It is a primitive campground with outhouses and no electrical hookups, but there is firepits and tables.
