Best Hikes Near Colorado Springs describes the Pancake Rocks Trail this way: “one of the finest day hikes in the Pikes Peak region. The trail offers it all–spectacular mountain scenery, willow-lined beaver ponds, hillsides of shimmering Aspen, far-reaching views, and unusual granite rock formations.”

Enjoy a popular four-season hike with unique rock formations, astonishing views and subalpine zone vegetation; including Blue Spruce, Limber Pine, and Aspen trees. You will appreciate the challenge and rewards of hiking at higher elevations without the extra stress of trying to summit a fourteener!  This is also a great hike if you also want to explore Cripple Creek.
