The Hells Hole trailhead is located south of Idaho Springs on the West Chicago Creek road next to the Chicago Lakes campground. The trail starts at 9,600 feet and ends on the north edge of timberline at 11,200. The first part of the hike is a steady climb, steep in parts, and follows Chicago Creek through a grove of aspens, which should be starting to change color. The trail levels off and at 4 miles opens to an alpine willow grove with Bristlecone pines.




Sorry it is past the registration deadline for this event.
