The CCC Trail starts across the road from the Upper Monument Canyon parking area. It is only about 0.75 miles long and gains ~400 vertical to connect with the Black Ridge Trail
. It was built by the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) and was named in their honor. This trail allows ambitious hikers to make some big link-ups in the Monument by connecting Monument Canyon Trail
to Upper Liberty Cap Trail
, or you can gain the Black Ridge Trail
and go for any length of out-and-back hike.
