Intersection with the Elk Range Trail
You are about 8.9 miles from the start. The Travois Trail T's into the Elk Range Trail. The Elk Range Trail is a jeep road/double track trail that will lead you back to the north parking lot. The Elk Range Trail is usually closed until mid June due to the elk. The gate will be closed and you are not permitted to use the trail. You will have to return the way that you came or you can descend from the West parking lot to Douglas Mountain Drive, climb Douglas Mountain Drive until you get to Robinson Hill Road. Take Robinson Hill Road to Camino Perdido Road. Take Camino Perdido Road back to the north parking lot from where you started this ride.
Unfortunately these are your only 2 options before mid-June, return the way that you came or take the Robinson Hill Road.
The final mileage listed for this trail includes the Juniper and Mayhem Gulch loop that I took on my return trip.
