This trail begins on a service road called High Drive but only pedestrians and bikes are allowed on the road. After about a mile you will reach a trail junction were Jones Park Trail, Penrose Trail, and Mays Peak Trail meet High Drive. To the East, the trail then begins to wind up Mays Peak with a forest of Spruce and Pine on all sides giving good shade. At the top you are given good views of Colorado Springs, North Cheyenne Canyon Park, and Pike National Forest. Trail 360 on YouTube
