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.

The trail can be hard to follow and there are some sketchy spots where you feel you might be blow off the side of the mountain, but a cool trail overall. Maybe leave the dog home, mine made it, but there was some difficult terrain.

Be careful at the top, very nice views of Pikes peak and surrounding Cheyenne canyon. Go past the seven bridges and another mile or so is the top of Kineo Mountain, to the right.

Continue on Seven Bridges Trail past the seventh bridge for 1 more mile to Kineo Mountain. There is some rock scrambling at the peak but there is a beautiful view of the surrounding peaks.
