The trail to Brown's Lake (unofficial name) is excellent due to what appears to be recent chainsaw work on large areas of blow-down timber. There are ambiguous directions to the trail head. The one starting with County Road 270 are correct. The trail takes you past a short spur trail to Gunnison Falls, a nice place to break.

Above Brown's Lake, just past the high point of the road, there is no apparent trail and one needs to use some map skills and contour cross country to the east bank overlooking the stream. Follow this drainage all the way up to the jeep crossroads. When the gulley narrows and becomes rocky, there are segments of a trail here and there. It would appear that almost all climbers either use 4WD access or walk up the jeep trails from the west.
