You will need to park in the town of Green Mountain Falls and hike to the trailhead. Once at the trailhead, this trail starts on a seldom used trail with a steep incline with Spruce, Fir, and Pine surrounding the trail. Once you reach the top of the incline there are Aspens that are beginning to change to their fall colors. The first reservoir you reach is Crystal Creek Reservoir then South and North Catamount Reservoir, all have fantastic views of Pikes Peak and the surrounding mountains. Trail 360 on YouTube

Loved this trail! It's beautiful but be ready for some climbing. Most of the incline is concentrated at the beginning. Once you get to the reservoirs its smooth sailing.
