Knight Ridge Trail is a 24 mile moderately trafficked out and back trail located near Granby, CO and is good for all skill levels. The trail is primarily used for hiking and is accessible from June until September.
Directions from Granby: Follow Highway 40 west to Highway 34. Go north on Hwy 34 to Forest Road 125, on the south end of Lake Granby. Follow 125 east to the Arapaho Bay Campground. The trailhead is located at the northwest end of the Arapaho Bay Campground parking lot.Alternate Access: The Knight Ridge Trail can also be accessed at the Shadow Mountain Dam, Grand Lake Village or by boat anywhere along the trail's length except for a mile stretch immediately below Shadow Mountain Dam.
We walked through the Knight's Trail as an alternative to the Roaring Creek Trail (both start around the same trailhead) as Roaring Creek was a verticle challenge while the Knights Trail is more like a pretty stroll. There is little elevation gain - however, you should be sure-footed as the tumble from the trail goes directly into the like and it seems like it would be none-too-fun the way down. We only went out about 2 miles and turned around, but the entire trail goes all the way to Grand Lake!
