    Route Description for Pavilion Point Hike

    The Pavilion Point is a wonderful excursion that hikers of all-skill levels can manage. Ascend the forested terrain to a memorable overlook of Georgetown and the impressive flanking cliffs. The Pavilion Point hike is a hidden gem, so if you are seeking a secluded adventure then you have come to the right spot. Note the initial section of the route may be a bit noisy due to the I-70, but the trains below mask much of the highway’s noise.

    Embark on your nature walk up the Pavilion Point Trail from the trailhead. Take the path signposted Argentine Central Railroad Grade Trail, a mouthful, we know. Anyways, track east up the trail. As you ascend the path, keep an eye out for historic mine remnants that so famously dot the cliff sides in this area. Hike up the aspen lined path, navigating a switchback to the summit.

    From the ridge’s summit, enjoy views of Georgetown in the north and sights of the verdant valley walls that sit parallel in the east. Take a break and enjoy the scenery. When you are ready, backtrack along the route to return to the trailhead.
