Site migration work is continuing and we are coming down to the last week of our fund raising effort. Your help is still needed. Please click on the "Donate" button now and just send us $10 or $20. Every little bit helps and your donation is being matched. While the site migration work is going on, the site on the old platform remains usable. Remember - We are the best and most complete website that has route beta on every ranked 13er in Colorado.
From the town of Silverton, drive east to the edge of town and one block past the courthouse, where the paved road splits, go straight. Then, drive north on Road 110, (or 10 according to some sources), a graded dirt road, all the way to the old townsite of Gladstone. Note that another fork of this road 110 goes up along the Animas River from out of Silverton if using the Trails Illustrated map #141. The road along the Animas is signed with a blue sign that reads County Road 2. Do not take that fork. At the intersection around Gladstone, head SE a brief distance, follow a switchback up a little then turn south on road 52 that climbs into the upper South Fork of Cement Creek where it terminates just below a small, unnamed lake. Park here. The last two miles on road 52 will be rougher. A higher clearance vehicle is recommended.
You can car-camp overnight at or around the trailhead or at a few other possible spots on the last two miles in above Gladstone. Be careful regarding private property.
