Jack Creek Trailhead

Area Status: Open

Located outside of Walden CO,  this primitive trailhead provides access to the Jack Creek drainage and the Never Summer Wilderness. The upper portion of FDR #758 is not suitable for passenger cars, 4WD is recommended. The trail is an old jeep road and is not well signed, although one should have no problem hiking through open meadows up to the pass. The trail is fairly steep up to the Continental Divide. Camping areas are available all along this trail. Spectacular views of Jack Creek drainage and the Never Summer Mountains can be seen. The trail enters the Never Summer Wilderness at the Continental Divide and Baker Pass. Please refer to the Wilderness Regulations. The wilderness is closed to motorized and mechanized vehicles.
