Great hike. Just steep enough. Someone should add a Mt. Kineo this way sign at the final intersection. Hiked it in early spring just after a good snow. Amazingggg!

Kineo Mountain has a lot to offer. The TH is right up the road from Helen Hunt falls. It is extremely easy to get to in any vehicle. Just complete the Seven Bridges trail route and keep going. You will hit a few spots that are pretty steep but you will be hiking through breathtaking aspens, great views of Cheyenne Canyon, and eventually of Colorado Springs.

The only part that was a little confusing was when you hit a sign for 622 A and 667. Don't take either of those larger trails, there is a smaller trail on the opposite side of the sign, take that one to the summit.
Elevation 9,479 ft.

A beautiful trail from start to finish. The trail to the summit of Kineo Mountain was a little difficult to find, and when we came to the junction of 667 and 622a we were somewhat miffed. We eventually noticed a little worn trail next to a downed tree and with a little read of the contours headed up to find the summit. I annotated a photo and uploaded it for clarification.

very beautiful hike but very vertical and losts of soft shifting sand and rock.. be super careful and wear good hiking shoes with good grip. I'm glad I had my hiking poles for sure!

its a great trail.. a bit hard to follow.. just make sure you follow the "622" trail signs and you will make it to the top.. good one to run

Is this one trail that leads to Jones Park or Meadow? If yes, then it's a tricky one and you need to channel your inner mountain goat going across the mountain side. Again if it is, it's worth it because the meadow is full of aspens.

Great hike. Only complaint is that it was a little difficult finding the trail for Kineo once past Seven Bridges. My recommendation is to look for a weird corkscrewing tree approx. 10-15 meters off the right once your heading north past SB --OR-- look near all the fallen trees by the 622a trail marker. Good view of C Springs at the summit.

Mt. Kineo was a grueling straight up the mountain hike for approximately 1,000 vertical ft of elevation to a summit of 9435ft. a beautiful view of pikes and the springs awaits. definitely category 2/3 scrambling. bring your best hiking boots and lots of water/food.
