Rainbow Trail

  Alright, enough of spending all this time inside a building, time to get out, and if you happen to be in Custer County of Colorado, Rainbow Trail is a great local trail for doing a bit of leg stretching. In the Sangre De Cristo Mountains you'll find lots of hiking trails where you can absorb the beauty of these mountains. Rainbow Trail is a trail quite far from Canon City but hiking it is always fun. With so many outdoors activities available in Colorado you'll never
    get bored.
Crystal Falls is a wonderful place to stop at while you're at Rainbow Trail, and why not go to close by Bear Creek if you're here at Rainbow Trail. All the outdoors fun stuff in the Sangre De Cristo Mountains will keep
you coming back over and over. During your tour to Rainbow Trail you'll meet some people from Westcliffe for sure. There's so much to do here at Rainbow Trail that you need to camp here for a while, Eberling Mobile Home and RV Park is a good place for that. A visit to Rio Grande National Forest when you're here at Rainbow Trail is a tremendous idea. You'll need more than a day to explore everything Rainbow Trail has to offer, you can camp at Cross D Bar Trout  
Ranch. If you come at the right time of year, Grape Creek offers some good whitewater. Rainbow Trail is mostly a quite dry place. Through the month of August you get the most rain around here; January on the other hand is the driest.
