Kenosha Pass North is a 7 mile heavily trafficked out and back trail located near Jefferson, CO that features beautiful wild flowers. The trail is rated as moderate and primarily used for hiking and mountain biking. Dogs are also able to use this trail.
I can imagine that this hike is beautiful when the Aspens are at full bloom. Unfortunately, this wasn't the case when I went mid October. But I cannot fault the lack of colors on the Aspens because the drive to this hike was beautiful and bountiful with colors. The hike itself, depending on which route you take, can be difficult, which I enjoyed. I didn't realize that there was outdoor camping near the entrance. I'll have to make it a point to camp there next year. Perfect hike with Aspens a are at full bloom.
Great trail.great views. Go toward South Park to see breathtaking views.
This was a great hike!! My dog and I really enjoyed it. Not too difficult but long enough that you get some good exercise. The end by the creek is a breathtaking grove of aspens and the dogs can play in the water. Definitely worth the drive.
Sep 27, 2016. Loved this nice easy hike to view the fall colors at their peak. You can take the trail as long or short as you like. About 1 1/2 miles out leads to an opening with a small wooden bench thats very beautiful. We started on the same side of the road as the campground. It was pretty crowded today because of peak week (even though its tuesday) but still was really beautiful! Giving this hike less stars because it was crowded and pretty easy.
Great Aspen groves full of color with some clearings .
Missed peak aspen fall color change by 2 wks. Without that the trail is kinda meh, going through trees with occasional open vistas which are quite pretty. Will try again next fall. It is probably spectacular if one can catch peak fall aspen colors.
Great for viewing the Fall Aspens. Got there a week or two late, so most had fallen, but some still had their vibrant yellow leaves. Good to go in late September.
