Holy Cross Trail

The Guide to Colorado Backroads & 4-Wheel Drive Trails decribes Holy Cross Trail as one of the most difficult hard-core trails in the state. offering non stop challenges to the serious four wheeler. It is a 3.8 mile trail totally unsuitable for ATVs which makes this already busy trail more enjoyable. Its steep and narrow with many obstacles which makes weekend wheeling of the trail and long day. Fortunately we went during the week and off season so we were up and down quick quickly. At the top of the trail is the old Holy Cross City mining town with building remains and rusting mining equipment.
