    Hike Tunnel Drive

    3.8 mi / 521 ft gain
    This 3.8 mile out and back trail is a very easy hike but can have moderate to high foot traffic depending on the season and time of day.

Fixing the power plant didn’t make sense and funds weren’t in place. The land was reverted to the government. The hike b...

    To get to the trailhead start on Old Stage Rd. After 11 miles turn right onto Forest Service Rd 379. This is a 4WD road. A small/large SUV, or truck should do the trick, nothing too crazy though.

    4.0
    4.75 mi / 1600 ft gain
    Follow North Cheyenne Creek through the canyon as it forms several cascades along the way. Due to water levels, spring is an especially good time for this hike. Most turn around just past the seventh bridge, where the trail starts to disappear.
