Creede, Colorado Map
VIEW FULL MAP

Mostly in the woods with occasional views of the mountains and river canyon formed by Williams Creek. The picture of the photo must be Williams Lake, which would be a very long day hike. Not a particularly interesting trail.

Trail is in pretty good shape. Just watch the weather for rain so that it’s not muddy. I did it in a Jeep Grand Cherokee with a 2” lift and all terrain tires. Didn’t encounter any hard obstacles. Trail does get a little tight in some areas so will get some scratching and pinstriping from tree branches. Could be done in a crossover suv would just need to take it slow and would probably experience some rubbing. Larger truck might have issues due to width. Took me 2 hours each way. Head up early bring some food and enjoy the trails.

Walked the loop with our 3 kids this morning. My 4 & 5 year old were able to walk the entire loop without help. 1 down tree covering the trail, parts overgrown but overall easy to follow.

Went from Lobo Overlook to Big Meadows lake through Archuleta lake. At mile 9.5 watch for the trail. We got off and bushwhacked until we saw people up on the bluff to the left on the correct trail. Stay up high. Awesome trail run! Want to do it again!

I drove this trail in a Nissan Titan Pro 4X. A little tight in spots but its doable Expect some scratching on the paint. Lots of downed trees that were cleared right up to the edge of the road. The road was dry and a few creek crossings with very little water. It took me about an hour and 45 minutes each way. rocky in spots and lots of dips. Just take it slow. Very slow. Well worth the trip. Beautiful formations. Next time would take an ATV or something on the size of a Jeep. I was told an ATV is a little smoother of a ride

The road is rocky and slow taking us about 2 hours one way in a stock Jeep wrangler. Seeing the Wheeler Area at the end of the road was well worth the trip. We did the 3.5 mile hiking trail loop around Wheeler which seemed to lightly traveled with tall grass growing up in some sections. The loop offered everything from forest walking to some great views from the top of the Wheeler cliffs.

Good scenery to the creek but the trail is extremely beat up to horse traffic. Lots of loose everything.

Took the drive up to Wheeler with a stock Toyota Tundra. Roads where rocky but not undoable in a 4wd, took us 2 hours to drive each way. it's 24 miles from paved road. Then we hiked the Wheeler loop which per GPS was 3.5 miles, moderate trail. Hard to follow some of the trail was overgrown.

9-12-19 Had a lot of fun. Wore my legs out for over 7 miles with a training pack. Chipmunks galore, lots of beautiful rushing water and pristine views. 2 manageable water crossings and 1 downed tree.

Directions lead to a closed road. Avoid this route!! Waste of 4+ hours

A fantastic weekend loop. Start at the same parking lot for Fourmile Falls Trail but take the West Fork onto Anderson Trail up the mountain. This portion of the trail is very lightly travelled and offers excellent views of the area. There is some moderate/difficult elevation gain involved but the Trail is very well marked. This could be done as a 1 day but would recommend it as an overnight. Camp at the lovely lake which is right at intersection of Anderson and Fourmile Falls trail. Per my map the lake is at 8.2 miles from the parking lot. Very few people venture up all the way to the lake on the highly travelled Fourmile Falls trail. Take the Fourmile trail back down to the parking lot enjoying access and views of the falls back to the parking lot.

Wonderful, isolated trail in beautiful part of Colorado. We arrived late in the day and found a spot to set up camp about 1 mile in. First 1-1.5 miles are quite steep, then levels out for a while. Definitely a moderately difficult hike due to pitch, but worth the effort. Luckily there were still plenty of wildflowers in bloom at the end of Sept, and the lakes are gorgeous. EXTREMELY buggy, so go prepared. They’re aggressive and will bite through clothing.

An easy trail in late summer. Definitely rocky but pretty and not a lot of traffic. No obstacles, a few stream crossing, nothing a stock vehicle can't handle.

Great hike with beautiful view of reservoir lake. Some narrow trail sections but clearly visible. Lots of green growth through trails into some marsh behind lake. Would definitely recommend and will do this hike again.

A beautiful trail that is easy to follow, with plenty of flowering meadows. My husband and I had to cross a couple creeks by rock/log hopping. We didn’t come across anyone else on the trial. Initially the ascent was somewhat difficult, but it levels off after about 2 miles. Plenty of large animal scat and markings along the trail, but no animal sightings other than birds and chipmunks. We went in about 5 miles and had to turn around due to family waiting on us. I didn’t time it going up, but going down took 1 hour 45 minutes. I would have loved to go further, but I will have to save it for next time.

Hiked this on 8/23/19. Fairly easy and straightforward for a 14er, the difficulty comes in just the distance. We camped the night before and if you drive down the road a 1/2 mile you get to Eddiesville Trailhead there are bathrooms and a big field perfect for camping. We had some snow (!) flurries up top but otherwise perfect weather.

Beautiful easy hike around the lake. Really enjoyed it.

The loop is a little washed out when entering near the Mining museum. Also at Black Pitch hill we didn’t have enough momentum and had to back down a ways and try again my Crosstrek MT6 was bouncing all the way up that incline but we made it. Last Chance Mine which is on the way down was a very interesting place and tour. The road down from Last Chance was good enough for even a UPS truck.

This trail is pretty steep and rocky. Some great views along the way. Cross the stream a couple of times. Opens into a meadow after about 1.5 to 2 miles with access to the river across the meadow. We turned back at this point. Took us about 2.5 hours to do this much.

Long easy hike. So many wildflowers in bloom. Extensive pond system with multiple beaver dams along the way. Summit views west to other San Juan Peaks like Uncompahgre.
