Mt. Buckhorn Trail, Pike National Forest - Colorado (including Photos & Videos)
The Mt. Buckhorn Trail is a fabulous trail that does not get the high levels of use that many of the other trails in North Cheyenne Canon Park get. In addition, because of its southern exposure, it is a great trail to hike in the winter time as it does not hold onto the snow as long. This trail connects to the Captain Jack's Trail, a very popular mountain biking, hiking and off-road motorcycle trail. Captain Jack's (Trail 665/667) is a multi-use trail so please be aware of, and considerate of all trail users.
