You will need Lockers or Winch to get up tot he trail head across the river, but all the work is worth it if you can reach the top. Only way in is 4wheel or hiking. Beautify trail with amazing views and the lake is prime for fishing.

After the bouncing along Lincoln Creek Road, past New York Creek trail, stop for a moment at the reservoir and spot the trout rising. Past the building, find the trailhead.

A perfect hike, in and out of spruce and aspen groves, lovely views, wonderful creek the whole way. The storms really hit this spot, so be prepared for thunderstorms and start early.

We hiked there a few weeks ago - early July 2007. Group of 6 ranging from 18 to 55 yrs. 6.5 mile rough rock road to get to the trailhead. You could probably get there in almost any vehicle, but you want a high profile vehicle to get over the rocks. Very beautiful, somewhat strenuous hike for a city dweller.... More
