The Colorado Trailhead at Angel of Shavano Campground may be accessed off Hwy 50 at Maysville by taking CR 240 north in Maysville. Drive 5 + miles north to Angel of Shavano Campground. On the north side and across the road is a Colorado Trailhead parking area.
This run is a popular out and back run especially during the fall when the Aspens are in their glory. From the parking lot Cross the road and take a trail on the west side of the campground south. Immediately you cross The North Fork of the Little Arkansas River and the trail begins to climb. Steeply the trail switches back three times until it gains a saddle and begins to drop. The vegetation is thick composed mainly of spruce and fir but there are some nice aspen stands as well. Again you can run this trail just as far as you like but remember you need to go back.
The mileage depend on how far you want to go.
