Route Description

The Singletree and Mayhoffer Hike is the ideal adventure for those seeking a long and challenging excursion. The undulating path will guide trail-goes through grassy plains alongside creeks, by a cow pasture, and beneath sparse tree shade. A diverse experience, you will appreciate the best of both worlds as you are rewarded with mountain views and sights of the city skyline. This path is almost completely exposed, so we recommend early morning adventures in the summer to avoid the intolerable heat. Additionally, make sure you keep an eye out for rattlesnakes as you travel the arid terrain.

Embark on your adventure from the trailhead. From here, track northwest along the Singletree Trail and over Coal Creek. Maintain this route until you cross W Coal Creek Drive. From here, the path merges into the Mayhoffer Trail. Trek past mines and over creeks. Soon the trail will merge into the Cowdrey Draw Trail. This trail will guide you past Marshall Lake prior to delivering you to a junction. Here, keep right and you will be diverted onto the Marshall Valley Trail. This path will guide you along the Davidson Ditch and past mines. At the next junction, veer left onto the Coal Seam Trail before taking another left turn onto the Community Ditch Trail.
