I rode this trail with my nephew Zach. Michelle and Debbie drove us up to the parking lot at the top of North Cheyenne Canyon park. We rode up Gold Camp road and took the Mt. Buckhorn trail up to the top of Captain Jack’s. It was about all downhill from there. Michelle and Deb picked us up down at the Stratton open space parking lot, where we took Sammy for a short hike.
I have lived in Colorado Springs for 17 years and this was my first time on Captain Jacks or the Chutes. I should have tried it sooner!
Here’s a video clip Zach made holding his iPhone on his handlebars.
This ride followed the PURPLE line:
