Description

Stairway to Heaven starts from the Colorow Trail Connector near the start of Colorow Trail West. Exit the Colorow Trail Connector and begin climbing the Stairway to Heaven.

After a few switchbacks, cross a rough doubletrack and continue on Stairway to Heaven. After some more rolling terrain, you'll arrive at another junction. A left here will take you up to Colorow Trail West and the future Colorow Flow trail area. Continue straight on Stairway to Heaven.

The trail will work its way though a drainage and then begin a switchback climb up the side of a prominent, wooded hill. Once at the top of this hill, you'll begin a nice, twisty climb up the prominent saddle to the north.

Once at the top of this saddle cross over an exposed section of the hillside to the east. A series of 12 switchbacks are the final barrier to reach the top of the trail. Once at the top, you'll be at the intersection with Colorow Trail East. Take a right to descend Colorow Trail East for a short loop, or take a left to explore other trails within the Colorow Trail Network.
