We're Powered by Donations. Will You Join the Cause?

Attention site users! On December 31, 2020, the company whose platform and hosting service we have used to build this site will discontinue their service. That means NO MORE SITE unless immediate action is taken. The ultimate goal will be to have the site rebuilt in another platform. In the interim, we plan to transfer this site to a "static" page where all the information will still be available but we will be unable to administrate the site. The ultimate goal will cost tens of thousands of dollars in professional costs. The immediate "static" solution will still cost several thousand. We are on retirement/SS income and do not have the personal resources to build this site again. To keep this site going, we may have to monetize it in some way such as required membership or allow advertising and you know how annoying that can be. So, if you have survived Covid-19 and still have steady income, please consider a donation in any amount now. For past contributors, thank you so much for doing so!

On Colorado State Highway 69, just south of the small community of Hillside, turn SSW onto CR198 which shortly turns and heads due west for 2.9 miles to an intersection with FR337. If you find yourself at the Rainbow Trail Camp, you've gone too far on CR198. The intersection should have a Forest Service sign for the South Brush Creek trail. Apparently the San Isabel National Forest does not refer to this trailhead as the Ducket Creek TH, but that's how it is designated on the Trails Illustrated Map #138 for the Sangre de Cristo range. FR337 will head south & west and in just over a mile will intersect the Rainbow Trail. This is where you should park. To get to both the North and South Brush Creek trails, you'll need to head south on the Rainbow Trail. It's approximately 5 miles to the S. Brush Creek Trail on the Rainbow Trail. The link below is to the San Isabel NF description of the Ducket/South Brush Creek TH.



We have never utilized this trailhead so the following information has not been verified, but it appears from Google Earth that shortly before reaching the trailhead, there appear to be numerous primitive campsites you can pull off into. The Forest Service does warn however, that you'll be driving through private property, so be careful.
