Directions from Carbondale: From the Forest Service office in Carbondale, travel west past the stoplight, following road #108 for 7.4 miles. Turn left onto a dirt road that immediately goes downhill. The road travels for 2.5 miles to a stream crossing, then uphill for about a mile to a pass. In another half mile take the right fork onto road #306. This is a good spot to park for a loop ride. You are now on an old railroad grade. At the end of the grade the road heads uphill and crosses Middle Thompson Creek. Travel about 1.5 miles to the trailhead sign on the left side of a meadow.
