Easy 4WD up to the Peru Creek road.4WD up the Chihuahua Gulch road.
Take U.S. 6 to the west end of Keystone. If you are driving east on U.S. 6, take the exit for Montezuma Road before U.S. 6 begins its climb to Loveland Pass. If you are driving west (from Loveland Pass), turn left into the River Run area of the Keystone Ski Resort. Take another quick left and drive a bit to get to the Montezuma Road. Drive ~4.3 miles on the Montezuma road and turn left on the 260 (dirt) road. There is a large parking area at the start of this road. You do not need 4WD to get to the trailhead but do not drive a low-clearance vehicle up this road. From the parking area, drive along Peru Creek approx. 2.25 miles to the trailhead (left). There is a small parking area on the right.If you have a short, high-clearance 4WD vehicle, you can continue another 2 miles up the rough Chihauhau Gulch road.
The Peru Creek (260) road is closed at the start.
