Parts of Dome Rock State Wildlife Area close for the bighorn sheep calving season from December 1 to July 15.

Description

There is parking for this trail off of Teller County Road 61, not far from the trailhead for Dome Rock Trail. From the parking area, the trail follows Willow Creek along a fairly steady uphill. The entire first mile and a half follow this creek. At the high point of the trail, you'll encounter some 4x4 roads, which the trail becomes as it turns west. Thereafter, the trail will slowly lose elevation as you follow a ridgeline. The trail ends when it changes names to Spring Creek Trail.
