Mount Evans Wilderness Hell’s Hole Trail

Mount Evans Wilderness: Hell’s Hole Trail Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Don’t let the name of this hike deter. Hell’s Hole is a difficult hike, but its challenge is rewarded. This trail travels through the woods to a high alpine basin in the Mount Evans Wilderness.

When it ends at Hell’s Hole, the path opens to a meadow where alpine willows grow in the shadow of Gray Wolf Mountain and Mount Evans. The only hell of the day will be found in the busy passing lanes of I-70 on the way there."

This trail is easily accessible off of Hwy 285, west out of Englewood, CO. Very well maintained, with potties, picnic benches, great trail markers & signs, and a good map (available at the Info Board {see pic}). Had a great time, took my 3 boys, ages 6, 3, and 7 months--yeah the baby was carried, but this is a stroller friendly place as many others out this morning had strollers. Great trail ride for mountain bikes too.

Had a GREAT time!!
