Runner Notes

High Drive can become very icy in early to mid Spring.

In May through Oct, it is open to traffic.

Description

High Drive is a dirt road that heads up into North Cheyenne Canyon Park from Bear Creek Park and can be used to connect many trails that run off of it, or it can simply be a enjoyed on its own.

High Drive connects the Palmer Trail back to the Section 16 trailhead, is the starting point of Trail 666 (Bear Creek Trail), Trail 667 (which will connect with 666 heading into Jones Park), and ends where it joins with Gold Camp Rd, which offers parking to access Seven Bridges and St. Mary's Falls.
