The description is a bit dated and hard to follow, so here‘s an update that hopefully users will find helpful. Going north out of Creede, stay left at the large display for the Bachelor Loop. This will take you through the Commodore mine complex. Road can be steep here, but it is in excellent shape and any car taller than a Corvette can use it. Next fork, stay left. The next turn is at the hairpin curve. Don‘t go into the mine area in front of you, but follow the hairpin curve to the left. The next intersection is a four way - go straight at this intersection. Next landmark is the Equity Mine. You cannot go through the Equity Mine property, so you bear left onto a 4WD road here. A 2WD car can make to this point easily. The 4WD road is not bad - we made it easily with a Honda Pilot. I would NOT try it with any low clearance vehicle - there are several streams to cross and some washouts where a low clearance car would probably bottom out. The trailhead is pretty obvious and there is room for several vehicles to park.

Will try and post some pictures, but not having any luck with that.
