Hike to Raspberry Mountain

5.2 miles 900 ft gain  - Out-and-Back Trail

Added by Billy DiMirra

This hike provides incredible views of Pikes Peak, as well as a 360 degree view of Divide and Pikes National Forest.

Take US-24 west and turn left at traffic light in Divide. Drive south on US-67 for about 4 miles. Turn left to CR-62 right after you pass the entrance to Mueller State park on the right. Drive about a mile on the dirt road and you will see the new trailhead parking lot on the left side.

Once you park, you will see a clearly marked trail that winds through a meadow leading up to the woods, where you will start the 2.6 mile hike to the Crags. This trail will take you through the woods and as you get higher and higher in elevation the view of Pikes Peak becomes more and more incredible. Once you get to the end of the trail you will see some really cool rock formations that provide some natural rock climbing and 360 degree view of Pikes Peak and Divide that will not disappoint.

Worth the view

The view at the end of this hike is amazing. There are points of the hike that are fairly challenging (depending how acclimated you are). We got got in a nasty storm right after reaching the top.
