A beautiful forested hike with some really amazing vistas along the way.
From the trailhead for the Powder Mill Trail off of Graham Hill Road, head south and then west. Then take Pipeline Road (a trail, not a road, for hikers and bicycles only) to the Eagle Creek Trail, and from there, take the Columbine Trail back to a trailhead north of where you started.
This hike can be done as a one-way, 3.3-mile hike with a car shuttle (as described above) or as an out-and-back hike of 6.6 miles (there’s always something different and wonderful to see in the return direction!).
With the exception of Pipeline Road, the trails on this route are for hiking only (no bicycles or horses).
