Trail Review: North Crestone Trail, Crestone, CO


The North Crestone Trail is 5.7 miles long. It begins at Forest Road 950 and ends at N. Crestone Lake. This trail offers excellent possibilities for extended backpacking, connects to Trail # 746 & 747, or just a good day hike from the campground. Fishing is possible along the creek and at North Crestone Lake.  Trailhead located at the east end of North Crestone Campground.

This was a great trail run, with a little over 3,000 feet of climbing, stunning views, and beautiful, varied terrain.
