To get there: Take US 24 west from Colorado Springs to Woodland Park, and turn right (north) on CO Highway 67. Take Hwy 67 28 miles to Deckers, and bear left onto Jefferson County Road 128. Take CR 128 for about 11 miles and turn left onto Forest Service Road 550. Follow FSR 550 for 5.5 miles to a fork with FSR 543 and bear right to stay on FSR 550. After another .5 miles turn right onto FSR 550D and follow it to the trailhead at the end. Once off of CR128, it's all dirt roads, which can be washboardy, but are passable in almost any vehicle.
Be good. Do good things.
