General Information

Directions:

From Lyons, head 15 miles north on Colorado Highway 7. Just east and within view of the turnoff for Riverside (on the south side of the highway), watch for Conifer Hill Road, which turns off to the north, and is marked with a line of mailboxes. Follow this road north up the hill. This is National Forest System Road 185, but may not be signed as such. Turn right at each road intersection, avoiding private property and driveways. Stay on the road most traveled. Final access to the trailhead is marked by a sign. The last 0.25 miles of road is very rough. A high clearance 4WD vehicle is recommended for final access to this trailhead.
