This trail is closed and there is no plans to reopen it. Please be respectful of this. The neighborhood does not like people parking there and putting themselves in danger.

Also this area is finally becoming restored with plant life. Walking through it only promotes more damage until it has a chance to fully heal.

IF YOU DO GO- be aware that there is a ton of loose rock and various sharp pieces of metal sticking out of the ground. Not a place for dogs or absent minded people. DO NOT go after a rain storm or snow melt. It’s incredibly dry despite the creek running through it and not many places to climb to safety should a flood occur.

Truly a sacred place that should be respected as such.

If you want a view, visit Cave of the Winds or drive along Rampart Range Road in Garden if the Gods
