Take 70W to CO74 to upper bear creek rd- right. Follow until fork in road--go right. Road turns into dirt road past state wildlife area. Go left 1.5 mi. If see llamas you have gone wrong way. You'll see an uphill start to trail, then lots of aspens and nice meadow. The trail ends at private property, so turn around and back out same way

Directions below from Karin are accurate. Pay attention though to the signs at the Wilderness area entrance - if it states it is closed for hunting, do not enter and turn around. You will get ticketed. It opens again on Nov 20 and stay open till Dec 15.After that it is closed for the winter.

Nice up and back 4.3 mi hike this morning. A little incline up the service road but not too bad for our old dog. Mostly jeep trail not single track but not many people out even for a weekend morning! Good wildflowers and a creek running thru.

All uphill to the first trail split about 2 miles in. So worth it! Great hike with water and sweeping meadows, Aspen and Pine forest. Lots of rock formations.

7-24-05 LS - directions vs what's here: we took 70W to CO74 to upper bear creek rd- right. Follow til fork in road--go right. Road turns into dirt road past state wildlife area.. another girl road - go left 1.5 mi. If see llamas -- gone wrong way. You'll see an uphill start to trail, then lots of aspens and nice meadow. The trail ends at private property, so turn around and back out same way (approx 2 miles each way)
