Trail shared by Allen Tanner

The trail to Mason and Boehmer Reservoirs.

Description

RESERVATIONS REQUIRED, SEE RESTRICTIONS.

The Mason Trail and the McReynolds Trail are on Colorado Springs Utilities Land. As such, certain rules exist; however this trail is a larger access trail to both Mason and Boehmer Reservoirs. While the trail has only about 700ft of climbing, most of it is above 11,000 ft so be prepared for a little lung time on the trail.

The trail begins off of the service road, just past the stationed ranger. A small climb in the first mile goes up above the Mason Reservoir. The trail then winds along the western edge of the reservoir in between the high altitude pines.

A gentle climb for the next two miles runs by a meadow between the two reservoirs. Another climb lies before Boehmer Reservoir. The out-and-back makes for about a nine-mile run.

As always, be prepared for weather changes as the trail is mostly above 11,000 ft.
