“A beautiful trail that takes you from the greater Thompson Divide Area to Coal Creek in Redstone.”— Tyler Vaughan
People also hike this a lot from Coal Creek as an out-and-back to the high point on the trail (4.2 miles in). The Thompson side of this trail is a little more neglected than the Coal Creek side.
To access this trail from the south, take Coal Creek Rd up from Redstone. The trailhead is at a washed out area on the right after a cattle guard. The trail from this side starts with a steep climb but then mellows. Part way up you'll come to an intersection in a meadow- take a left. A little further on a signed intersection, take a right straight up a shale bluff. At the top of the high point is a pass and meadow; turn around here to head back down or continue on for some more adventurous singletrack.
