Hankins Pass Trail #630

Pike & San Isabel National Forest, Cimarron & Comanche National Grasslands, National Forest in Colorado

Available to Hikers & Horseback riders, the 6.5 mile Hankins Pass Trail is the southernmost trail in the Lost Creek Wilderness. From the Goose Creek Trailhead, Hankins Pass Trail travels downhill to a footbridge across Hankins Gulch. After crossing the creek the trail heads west (Goose Creek Trail goes east/right), climbing up through a forested valley and then a series of open meadows surrounded by aspen groves. At the top of Hankins Pass is a junction with Lake Park Trail which travels north (right), while the Hankins Pass Trail begins it's descent to the west.

The grade along the west side of the pass is quite a bit steeper. After a short descent, the trail reaches the wilderness boundary an a junction with Lizard Rock Trail which travel south to Spruce Grove Campground. Hankins Pass Trail continues down in a northwesterly direction to it's end at the junction with Brookside-McCurdy Trail. Brookside-McCurdy Trail travels south to Twin Eagles Trailhead.

Several campsites are available between the trailhead & Hankins Pass, however there are few suitable areas for camping west of the pass.

Hankins Pass Trail offers several access points:

  • Goose Creek Trailhead: Reached via FR 211 at the end from Tarryall Road near Lake George or from the north end near Deckers. Includes a parking area and horse loading and unloading facilities.
