Trailhead: From the town of Divide, head South on Highway 67 for 4.3 miles to the Crags Campground turn on the left side of the road. A small forest service sign marks this turn, watch carefully as it is easy to miss. Follow this road as it heads East towards Pikes Peak. When you reach the Mennonite Camp turn right after passing a small pond. This turn is also signed. Continue on until you see the signs on the left for the Crags Campground. Turn into the campground and drive all the way through it to the large parking lot at the opposite end. There is a outhouse here and signs labeling the trailhead.

Summary:From the trailhead head NorthEast up a short set of stairs and the sign labeling the trail. This trail will wind through the trees staying on the NorthWest side of a stream. After a mile you will come to a clearing and a Y in the trail. Either will lead you to the Crags, however the prefered route is to take the trail on the right. This will lead you to better views. The last half mile is the steepest but worth completeing.

Wind worn tree
The wind takes its toll on several of the trees in this area, leaving in a very artistic appearance.
