    Andy Beaire reviewed Clear Fork Valley Scenic Trail

    4 days ago

    Great trail but not marked well! We got off trail many times and couldn’t figure out the route! I hike all over the country and I’m not incapable of following directions! I hike fourteeners and some of the most difficult trails , but my daughter and I both were very confused by this trail! Is some of this hike on the pavement? Up roads? Someone please chime in because I would like to hike this again. With that being said I think this hike could be a great place to hike in this area that is somewhat harder to do than the many other hikes in this area.

    I hiked this trail like 25 years ago before the crowds turned this into a trash dump! The lake itself has good views from a distance. First time I visited this place was 35 years ago and it was stunning and way less crowded! It was cool coming back to visit again.

    Great cardio trail and pretty crowded. If you have bad knees this isn’t for you! Good leg workout and views at top are way cool! I’m from Ohio so any view of Phoenix is cool!

    Fun and well maintained trail. I have done this hike a few times, one time in the summer! Not recommend unless it’s early in the day. Fall and winter best time to hike. But you all already know this. Fun!

    Fun and challenging near the top. I have done this trail a few times and in the past I would get off trail and do rock climbing. The view is awesome and depending on what time a day the views differ! I recommend starting as early as possible.

    Easy but did it for the views! We flew in to do Pikes Peak summit via Barr trail as well as the incline. Probably hiked over 10 trails here because we stayed at Roadway inn across the road!

    Andy Beaire reviewed Pikes Peak via Barr Trail

    12 days ago

    We spent 6 days in Manitou Springs hiking the Barr Trail exploring. One of the days we summited Pikes Peak. But we really enjoyed some of the trails via Barr trail you can take in the area. Some were harder than others but worth the incredible views. One of the days we hiked Barr trail was at 3:30 in the morning and the views in the dark of Colorado Springs area were stunning! We did however get off trail a few times in the dark discovering the incline but just back tracked a little. Barr Camp is very cool as well as the folks volunteering there. Around the 2 miles to the summit sign we somehow got off trail but found our way back just by looking up at a crane up top doing construction. The last mile was intense and when we got close I decided to climb up these huge boulders and loose rocks to the summit that were off the trail ! Very fun experience.

    Nice hike. Nice views from under darkness. We started at 3:30 in the morning and for the first 3 to 4 miles we were able to see Colorado Springs and vicinity from looking out. Very stunning views at night. We never hiked at night before in these kind of conditions. It was like 36 degrees at the trail head and parking lot! Because we were freezing our buts off we went at a crazy fast pace the first 2 miles. I was in shorts and a wind breaker jacket! Poor planning on my part. But after a few hours and hiking at an average of 24 minute miles I broke a sweat and wasn’t cold anymore. Because we made it to Barr Camp before most people were awake we quietly stopped at a picnic table and ate some food we packed , then headed up the trail toward the summit.

    Did this and didn’t do incline yet! Saving it for the next day. But incline is near and connects! On the way back down a tree was down right over the trail. We literally had to get on our hands and knees to get under it. Views are great!

    We did this trail to just stretch our legs and take in the views. Being from Ohio we don’t have these kind of views!

    Anything Barr trail is hard and amazing. Being from Ohio with no elevation whatsoever every trail in Ohio is easy and a baby trail compared to this! I highly recommend this hike.
