You have to access the trail head by going to the Pueblo Mountain Park or Davenport Campground. The access to the Squirrel Creek Trail Head is approximately 2 miles up in another trail with very minimal tree cover. Think "hot and steep". Very pretty, but would recommend going very early. If you take a dog there is no water for about two miles, take at least enough for your dog until you are out of the sun. It is very rocky, easy for paws to get cut.

Great trail with many connecting trails. You could spend the entire day hiking in this area. The trees are turning which makes the hike even more beautiful.

Beautiful from any angle. Camping right next to the creek east to wake up and go.

We connected from the Pueblo Mountain Park trail system and went a couple miles up Squirrel creek trail. The creek was flowing and we went through 7 or 8 crossings that were 6" up to 1.5' deep before running out of time and turning back. We saw no one else on teh trail and it has a nice flow to it for the first east portion that we did. Will be back to do the complete hike.
