Description

A moderate hike traversing through a mixed pine forest that leads to one of Colorado's most iconic rock formations-Pancake Rocks. These rocks are quite capacious and look like pancakes stacked on top of one another.

Take Horsethief Park Trail (#704) about .7 miles from the parking area to the first fork. This section of the trail is an abundantly used, spacious path with a slight incline that runs parallel to an Oil Creek tributary.

At the fork, continue straight. There are no signs at this point, but this is the transition to Pancake Rocks Trail (#704A). The footpath continues to be fairly easy and wide. You'll be on this section of Pancake Rocks Trail (#704A) for about .2 miles before Pancake Rocks Trail (#704A) splits to the right. There will be signage at the junction.
