DIRECTIONS

(From Ouray): At the first switchback south of Ouray, turn onto Camp Bird Road. The trailhead is on your left .4 miles up the road. Without 4WD or high clearance, this spot can be difficult to reach in the winter, and there may not be enough space to pull over and park with the snow.

.4 mi; 2 min
