Trail shared by Brian Mihlbachler

A nice run through forest and meadows to a view of Pikes Peak.

Farish Recreation Area is not open to the public and the trails are only accessible to patrons of this facility.

Description

Winding through mountain meadows and mixed-forests of pine, fir, aspen, and spruce, the Peakview Trail offers incredible views of the Farish Recreation Area backcountry and Pikes Peak. Most of the grade is gradual, but there are a few short sections of steeper trail. Although tempting, please do not cut across the environmentally sensitive wet meadows to connect with other trails.
