Narrow Gauge Trail (CO) Description

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.

Narrow Gauge Trail (CO) Reviews

Wife and I had a wonderful day at "Pine Valley Ranch Park", walked part of the "Narrow Gauge Trail"(Easy) then switched to the "Buck Gulch Trail"(Easy to Moderate) for a mile. Then took the "Strawberry Jack Trail"(Moderate to Steep) in Pike National Forest until we got to "Park View Trail"(Moderate to Steep) back to "Narrow Gauge Trail". Total hike was about 5 miles and a Great day. I can not wait to check out more or the area. Back in June of 2002 the Hayman Wildfire burned a lt of this area, but the forest & wildlife are returning nicely 10 years after.
