Description

Trail #001A is a good scenic trail for those looking for longer hikes in the Garden of the Gods Wilderness. You can hike it to Trail #108E for outstanding rock formations and easy access to the main parking, or you can continue along until Trail #108J to loop back to either the backpackers lot or main parking. There is more of #001A past #108J, but there's not a lot out there to see. This scenic trail makes a great option for a variety of loops in the area.
