Trail shared by Mike Pritchard

An access road to BLM Crown routes, though agricultural fields and up a steep ranching road.

Features -none-

Glassier OS recreation routes are seasonally closed to public use from Dec. 1 through May 15 (opens May 16). No dogs or motorized vehicles allowed.

This is a multi use area. Please stay alert while on the trail and be respectful of other users.

Description

The Glassier Open Space provides a new way to access the Crown BLM lands above El Jebel, CO. Follow the route on cinder pathway and semi-paved road through agricultural fields. Make a sharp left at the base of the red rock cliff band and continue straight up the doubletrack road. At this point, you can jump onto the new singletrack Glassier OS Trail.

You may find a few tougher sections as you climb through high mountain desert terrain. Expect scrub oak, sage fields, cactus patches, pinion, and juniper. The road is an easy way back down to the valley floor.

While this open space is in Eagle County, it's managed by Pitkin County Open Space & Trails.

Use this route to connect with Buckhorn Traverse via BLM Glassier to 8324 Route.
