Gibson Lake Trailhead
Added by Navigaiter

Location:  Front Range
Road Type:  Easy 4WD, good clearance recommended. 3   (0=Paved, 6=Very Difficult 4WD)
As of 12/1/12, the trailhead is accessible to a Subaru Outback. The creek crossing is shallow and lined by ice on both sides, but there was no problem with exiting the creek.
Directions:  From the US 285 / Hall County Road junction, drive West on Hall County Road for approximately 5,5 miles. There is a very clear sign directing you to take a left fork in the road to the Gibson Lake Trailhead. Continue approximately 1.5 miles until the well-signed trailhead.
Winter Access:  Unknown

2015-03-29 Drove all the way up to the picnic area right before the Webster Pass Junction and walked to the Gibson Lake TH. The road is 75% covered in snow. Don‘t bother trying you‘ll just get stuck. Frozen in the morning.... Slush in the afternoon. Park at the Picnic Area. About a mile walk. Skied Whale Peak. Fun. Taillon75  1       
2013-07-30 I decided not to take my Honda CR-V past the stream crossing, about 1.2 miles below the trailhead. The stream was shallow, but the road got considerably more rocky after that point. On the way up, I saw a few vehicles at camping spots, but none at the trailhead. On the way down, I was able to walk as fast as the Jeep Wrangler I followed. edhaman
