Longs Ranch Road Trail Information (including videos)
Long's Ranch Road is one of several alternative routes that link up to the Barr Trail. It is used by trail runners seeking a loop trail around Barr Trail or as an alternative approach to the Barr Trail (rather than the standard, and the very crowded route from Manitou Springs). Mountain bikers also love the long downhill ride which starts at the intersection with Barr Trail.
The Long's Ranch Road is included on POCKET PALS Trail Map # 5. The other trails included on Trail Map #5 are Barr Trail, Bob's Road, Heizer, Manitou Incline, Ring the Peak (Segment 1-1A), Trail 329, Trail 638, Trail 671, Trail 703 (French Creek), Trail 706, Ute Indian, and Water Pipe.
All Pocket Pals Trail Maps offer very detailed information for each trail including: trail distances, allowed trail uses, difficulty levels, elevation profiles, total ascent/descent, directions to trailhead, trailhead longitude and latitude, and waypoints (landmarks along each trail).
