Location

 

 

The Denver South Park and Pacific railroad ran from 1878 to the mid 1930s.  The grade is visible along US Highway 285 from Bailey through South Park..

Depending on conditions, we will do a car drop and hike to it from the other end, or an out and back. Either we'll park a car on Kenosha Pass and return to Hall Valley.  From there we'll follow the old grade up to the car.  Or we'll park up on the pass and do an out and back along the route.  Either way, it runs high on the south facing side of the hill.   We might find an old spike or two. Expect views of the Kenosha Range and new perspectives on the upper South Platte Valley.
