2013-08-08 Permission to access this trail can be obtained by contacting Sophie at the Crestone Mountain Zen Center: I and several others have had luck obtaining permission to access the TH through their property. They will likely request that you park at their parking lot, not build any fires on their property, and respect the creek as it is their only water sourece. spadflyer12         
2008-10-08 This public trail crosses private property before entering National forest lands. The private property owners place a very high value on quiet and their private property rights. There are no facilities on this trail and camping or building a fire are prohibited. Deviating from the trail is trespassing on private property. wmfolk

2008-06-16 This trail; as well as the Cottonwood Creek trail; will remain closed to public access during the 2008 climbing season due to private property at the trailhead. The property owner has asked not to be contacted to grant access. There are some ongoing discussions about access to these two trails convened by Saguache County government. CMc is a participant. However, the discussion process is in a very early stage. Steve Bonowski June 16, 2008 Steve Bonowski         
2008-06-16 The first mile of the trail can be lost quite easily with the encroachment of VERY thorny bushes. vermonster
