|I thought I'd voted on this one a long time ago. Great page! It inspired me to climb up from the back side via FR 376. That and seeing it from my yard every day!|

|Is there a trail just N of N Cheyenne Creek that parallels the creek and intersects Rt 701?|
I have a Pikes Peak Atlas Orman Map from 1976 that indicates a trail paralleling N Cheyenne Creek going east/west, going to Smokey City Mine and then continues to 379A, a road that appears to be above Stratton Resevoir and which goes to Almagre Summit.
I would like to come up 622 from Gold Camp Rd/High Dr parking lot, then to 668 to 701, head N on 701, go just past the creek, then on trail to Smokey City and Almagre.
In the alternative, it appears that this unmarked trail heads NW just W of Nelson Camp, splitting off from 668 in a NW direction, more or less paralelling N Cheyenne Creek, crossing 701 and going to Smokey City Mine, etc.
If this trail still exists and is hikeable then it seems to be a lot shorter route and more doable than 622-668-701-379-379A to the summit.
Would like to make the RT during the same day.
Please advise. Thank you.

|Per my response on the Almagre South page... Haven't taken the route, might want to post your inquiry to forums, then post a route or TR after success!|
