• From Denver take U.S. 285 south to County Highway 126, Pine Junction, then south on 126.  Proceed through Pine Grove to Buffalo Creek (where the North Fork of the S. Platte River crosses the road). About ½ mile south of the North Fork of the S. Platte River crossing County Highway 126, turn west (right) onto Buffalo Creek Rd. (FS Rd. 543).  A primitive lot with portable toilet is located approximately ¼ mi. west on FS 543 from Highway 126.  However, we suggest driving west on FS Rd. 543 approximately 1 mi. from Highway 126 in the proximity of the first metal gate on FS 543.  The trail building staging area is just past the metal gate on the left denoted by the “Parking” on the map.
  • Look for the Trailblazers’ tent canopies on the left just past the gate.
