Description

The trail starts at the caretaker's cottage on Gold Camp Road in Bear Creek. Just head on up until you reach the top, it gets steeper the higher you go. There are a couple of trails branching off the road; Palmer Trail and the Bear Creek Trail.

Once you reach the top, the road continues down to the south into Cheyenne Canon and hits Gold Camp Road again in the main parking lot above Helen Hunt Falls.

The trail to the northeast is Captain Jack's downhill. To the west is the short, difficult climb up to the Buckhorn overlook.
