Forest Service Trail 666 follows the Bear Creek closely up into the mountains. Enjoy impressive overlooks of the Tinney Crags and city on this beautiful hike. Bring your bear bells and bear spray as a precaution as you are likely going to be the only person you see on this Trail.

We did went out to the falls (which aren’t much to look at based on where the trail dead-ends), but some good rocks to have a snack. On the way back, we took 776 to 667 (and this was the best part of the hike), which crosses the ridge between Bear Creek Cañon and N. Cheyenne Cañon. Best views of that cañon as well as the Broadmoor, Shrine of the Sun, etc. Altogether, almost 8.5 miles.

Uphill the entire way, but the views distract from your burning quads. It is closed before you get to the waterfall for reclamation, but still ~5.5 out and back.

Trail ends right at the waterfall due to reclamation efforts. It seems permanent as they cut down a lot of trees that make it almost impassible. There’s about another 2 miles cut off. There is a sign that will tell you dead-end. Still worth the hike the elevation gain really gets the heart pumping

Trail 666 is closed 2.5 miles into it due to reclamation of cutthroat trout. The trail is closed a little after the cap'n jack trail split passed Josephine falls. You can still get wonderful views of specimen rock, sentinel rock, and tenney crags.

We love this trail so much. The bridges you walk over are really neat and the views of the crags are awesome. This trail is your pathway into the deep forest of the Southern front range of the Rocky Mountains. At the end of this trail, you have the ability to continue down Trail 667 then connect to Trail 701 where you will see views on foot very few ever see.
