Description

Practically speaking, most visitors won't realize they're on a different trail or road at this point. Looking at the trailhead map, however, the initial doubletrack from the parking area is Longmont Dam Road, which heads north and west, while this access road continues south and west to the dam.

If you get a chance, look down on the dam release into the creek. The mist is cool and refreshing on hot days.
