|Trailhead:||La Plata Peak
|Date of Info:||08/03/2013|
Started up the road at 5am. No moon was out and it was darker than the inside of a goat! I walked right past the trailhead. Luckily there were 4 guys coming back down the road that had done the same thing.
*Note: If you are leaving in the dark, the trailhead is roughly 450 steps past the end of the bridge, about 20 steps past the green gate. Also, when you get to the creek, do NOT follow parallel to the creek, the bridge is straight in front of you. If you look next to the tree that the trail runs into, you will see three rock steps.
This may sound obvious, but if its your first time there and you are in the dark, it will help.
The trail is easy to follow when you get past the bridge.
