To reach the trailhead from Pinedale, drive south on US Highway 191 to the town of Boulder. Turn east onto Wyoming Highway 353 and drive just over two miles and turn left (north) onto the Boulder Lake road. Continue on this road for 10 miles, bearing right at the junction with the Boulder Lake dam road, to the trailhead and campground area.

It was an adventure! Cool beautiful beaver damn/lake. Hike was good for as far as we got - a skunk chased us, tail in the air, rear end facing us. We ran like hell! I think the skunk was protecting it's young. We waited a while and tried passing again but the skunk came after us again. We left!
