Similitude of Black Powder Pass Hiking Trail as Trail Begins
Black Powder Pass Trail starts out very gradual as you leave the station house with water being diverted down a canal along the trail for a short bit. Of Hiking Trails Colorado this is a great family hike, elevation gain is moderate with beautiful panoramic views. As with any outdoor adventure, make sure you have plenty of water and the right layers of hiking clothes for warmth and to stay dry. A first aid kit and let others know where you are going.
