A great trail along the ridge with views of the Falls Creek Area and Animas Valley.

Description

This map starts at the main parking area, but numerous parking spots can be found along Falls Creek Road (County Road 205).

Follow the trail northeast up the valley and up to the ridge. There are many trails in this area, so generally follow the trail that heads north along the ridge. At approximately 1.5 miles, you'll come to a very steep descent to the creek. An alternative trail drops to the east side of the ridge offering a more gentle descent. At 4.1 miles, you'll come to a prominent fork in the trail, take the right fork, which will take you on the east side of the ridge into an old burn area.

In a short distance, you'll reach a sign indicating that you are on private property and to remain on the trail. Not far past the sign you'll reach the Church Camp Loop.
