Description

Foot trail. Motorized vehicles are prohibited. It is a loop trail and it overlooks Waldo Canyon. This is a very good nature trail. Many species of animals and plants may be viewed along this trail.

This trail is the most heavily used trail on the Pikes Peak District. Two miles in the trail opens into a meadow near a stream. Reportedly this is the site of the former Waldo Hog Ranch for which the trail is named. At the end of the meadow is the junction of a three mile loop. Occasionally, deer and bighorn sheep may be spotted, but the views, birds, wildflowers and trees make the trip worthwhile.
