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!

From an intersection just on the north side of I-70 at Silverthorne, CO, drive north on SH 9,  7.9 miles to a turnoff to the west right across from the Blue River Campground. The left turn will be onto FR1350/1351. Head west up this road avoiding any opportunities to turn left. The road soon makes a switchback up the hillside and then keeps heading west. At 1.3 miles, make a left turn. This takes you off FR1351 and keeps you on FR1350. It's approximately another 1.6 miles to the trailhead parking area. While there is a fair amount of parking room here, summer weekends may still find this lot full. Plan accordingly.


Once you make the turn at 1.3 miles from SH 9, you will be getting away from private property and farther up the road will see several at large spots prior to the trailhead. There is also the Blue River CG at the turnoff on SH 9. This is a National Forest fee area with 25 units and vault toilets, but no water.
