Need to Know

The Collegiate Peak Overlook has vault toilets (a day fee is required to park here)
The parking area above the Overlook (Midland TH) has portalets available in summer months.

Description

Fistful of Dollars can be accessed from either the top or bottom of the trail (day use fees apply is parking in the lower lot).

Starting in the upper parking lot on CR304 (Midland TH), look to the southwest to find the start of the trail. Views of Mt. Princeton dominate the skyline, with views of Mts. Antero & Ouray prominent to the south.

The trail itself is straightforward & easy to navigate. A couple of well-marked intersections provide the option of exploring additional trails & creates some loop options. In typical BV fashion, you'll hike through plenty of sandy areas & rock. Keep an eye out for lizards bathing in the sun. The trail terminates on CR304, near the Collegiate Peaks Overlook.

For a great loop, cross CR304 & head back up Django Trail #6033. Once you top out on Django Trail #6033, turn left & take the CR376a back to the parking lot, or Bacon Strip for a little more (.3 miles) trail.

This is also a popular area for mountain bikers & equestrians, so stay alert!

Flora & Fauna

Deer, lizards, & mountain lions.
