Bull Creek Trail 85

Area Status: Open
This area is Open
 

Access:  The Bull Creek trail can be accessed either from Lake Fork Trail #82 or Midnight Trail #81.

Attractions and Considerations:  The Bull Creek Trail leaves the Lake Fork Trail 2.3 miles from Cabresto Lake and follows Bull Creek to a ridge and the junction of Trail #167.  Cabresto (12448 ft) and Pinabete (11948 ft) Peaks may be accessed by turning right and following this trail to the south.  Continuing north on Trail #85 you drop over the west side of the ridge and follow it to the Latir Peaks and the alpine Latir Mesa.  The view to the north includes the Latir Lakes 800 feet below and Colorado in the distance.  The Latir Lakes require a permit as they are on Private Land.  Permits can be obtained at the Rio Costilla Livestock Association on Hwy 1950.  Follow the switchbacks off the mesa to Heart Lake and Baldy Cabin.
