June 4, 2009...Roach‘s description is outdated and confusing. The bridge he refers to is the small bridge in the center of Creede and it is not labeled. It is not "south of creede" as he describes it. The north most of the 3 dirt roads past the bridge is now the only road of the three that is paved. When you see the cemetary sign...do not turn right...keep the sign on your right and go straight up the hill.
Conditions...We were able to get all the way up to the upper parking area...past the Equity mine...in a stock Jeep Liberty. The creek crossings were insignificant. The only difficulty was a mud pit 100 yards from the top. On the way down we helped pull a Range Rover out of it.
