Pierson Park Road

Basics
Length:
8.1 miles
Difficulty:
Intermediate

Description

This road is by turns easy and by turns rather tricky - steep and loose with rocks. At the beginning, you'll thread through aspen groves and meadows. When the road climbs, it climbs. You'll need to pause at the end of the ascent to open a gate (and close it behind you). Then, you'll be driving through trees - almost literally. The trunks crowd close and you won't be able to pass here for the most part. After you climb out of the trees, the trail gentles. You can run Johnny Park Road from near the end of this trail.

Grand Lake Grand Lake Grand Lake
Rocky Mountain National ParkAt the edge of Rocky Mountain National Park, Grand Lake is the deepest natural lake in Colorado, dipping to 265 feet. Fed by high mountain runoff, the lake is clear and pristine. In the summer, you can rent a boat, bring your own or simply enjoy the gentle lapping of the waves from the sandy shore. Grand Lake connects with Shadow Mountain Lake via a canal, and just down the road is Lake Granby, the second largest body of water in Colorado.
