The Pike's Peak trail is an unmaintained trail which provides many views to the Bowsman River Canyon. Once at the top the "clay banks", you obtain a greater respect for this river. The outlook faces the southwest from what is called Pike's Peak and provides some of the best sunset views around. If you choose to mountain bike the trail, this is an intermediate or higher-level ride due to the steep terrain. Because of possible logging operations, be sure to contact the nearest government office for updated information before using this trail.

To answer Kevin Esau's comments we have uploaded a recording for the alternative route to access the trail from the east, therefore avoiding the river crossing. Please review the recording "Pike's Peak Alternative Access" and details for more info.

Tried the hike on May 31, 2018. Parked at the fork of the snowmobile traile/maintenance trail. Northbound was closed due to a closed road sign stating bridge was out. Westbound was closed due to fire risk sign.
Tried walking to river. Once I got there, bridge was out and no way to cross the river. Did not try to bush wack to a possible crossing so not sure if there are options. So until river goes down or bridge is replaced I would not recommend

Love this trail. Have to cross river on foot...wear good shoes and take a walking stick. Make noise to let bears know you are in their neighbourhood.
