Pancake Rocks Trail - Teller County, Colorado

Pancake Rocks, CO
Note: Photo above taken on the winter hike to Horsethief Falls.
Directions: The trailhead for Horsethief Falls and the Pancake Rocks are right on STate Highway 67 at the old tunnel, approximately six miles south of Divide, CO. Hike the trail as if you are headed to Horsethief Falls and before reaching the waterfall, a spur trail goes right at the sign.
Sentinel Point, CO The first 1.5 miles are somewhat steep, but you will get your money's worth in Colorado views right away! I believe that peak is known as Sentinel Point, a lofty point among Pikes Peak's western hills.
Yellow Leaves Yellow Leaves It was only August, but a few yellow aspen leaves were on the ground. :)

My area autumn pages: Wilkerson Pass, Colorado Foliage, Phantom Canyon Road and Chaffee County.

I reached a clearing with nice views to the southwest, with a few pancake-ish rocks to whet your appetite ... but keep hiking!

The Pancake Rocks

To get there, just before the trail makes a significant downhill, look to the right and hike about 500 yards in that direction. You will see these pancake rocks and a grand lookout.
