Description

This trail provides access to the park from the town of Allenspark. It climbs, often steeply, through coniferous forest from an elevation of about 8,600 feet to roughly 9,600 feet. About 0.8 miles into the trail, you'll see the Finch cutoff - Allens Park Connector spur off to the right. This trail leads to the Fox Creek Trail.

The Allenspark trail ends at a junction with the Finch Lake - Pear Lake Trail.
