Where is the new trailhead for The Crags (Pikes Pk)?

Postby tmathews » Thu Feb 04, 2010 11:07 am

The last time I was up there was in October and I couldn't locate the new trailhead for The Crags, so I ended up parking at the old trailhead inside the campground. Is it before or after the turnoff for the campground? I remember driving past this one area with restroom facilities on my left (before the campground), but I didn't see any signage for a trailhead.

Where exactly is it? Thanks!

It's at the rather large new parking lot just before you reach the entrance to the campground. Just head towards the creek from the parking lot and look for the bridge.
Remember what your knees are for.

Is that where I saw the restroom facility? I think I remember something that looked like a parking area across the road from it....

Yes that's it, the parking lot is on the right (west) side of the road opposite the trailhead.
