Gaining only 200+ feet in elevation, the Narrow Gauge Trail is in Pine Valley Ranch Park, a beautiful open space near the mountain community of Pine, Colorado. The trail follows the north bank of the North Fork of the South Platte River, through pine forests and open meadows.
The 2-mile trail is out and back but does link to other trails in the park. Note, some trails in the park are for foot traffic only but the Narrow Gauge Trail is multi-use.
Parking and Trail Access
Pine Valley Ranch Park is west of the community of Pine. Take Pine Valley Road/CR 126 west to Crystal Lake Road and follow the signs for the park.
