Grizzly Helena Trail #1126
Pitchpine Trailhead to Lone Pine Trailhead

Routt National Forest

Available for motorcycles, hiking, biking and horseback riding, the 7 mile Grizzly Helena Trail provides primary access to Lost Ranger Trail.

This section of the Grizzly Helena Trail, which covers 30 miles total parallels the Mt. Zirkel Wilderness boundary, travels north from the Pitchpine Trailhead. Leaving the open sagebrush covered hillside, Grizzly Helena Trail enters lodgepole pine forest and descends to Sunday Creek meadows through aspens before traveling along the Roaring Fork. After fording the Roaring Fork to the forest boundary Grizzly Helena Trail intersects with Lost Ranger Trail at the mouth of Red Canyon.

Continuing northward, the trail eventually reaches Red Canyon North Rim 4WD Road which serves as the trail for about 0.25 mile to the west where Grizzly Helena Trail branches off towards Hell Creek. Traveling on to cross Lone Pine Creek and up to Lone Pine Creek Road.

Although suitable for horse use, feeding areas are sparse along this section of Grizzly Helena Trail.

This section of Grizzly Helena Trail offers 2 access points:

  1. Travel along CR 12W from Highway 125-14 near Walden Colorado to CR 18. At the T on CR 18 turn right onto CR 5. Continue along CR 5 to CR 20 and turn left. Travel along CR 20 to the forest boundary to Pitchpine Trailhead on the left just after the cattleguard, in an open meadow.

  2. Travel along CR 12W west from Highway 125-14 near Walden to CR 16, which travels through Lone Pine Ranch. Follow this road to the forest boundary and continue west along FR 640 about a mile to Lone Pine Trailhead on the south side of the road.
