Voted 10/10

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!
