2 (0=Paved, 6=Very Difficult 4WD)
Rough 2WD dirt to the TH.
From Breckenridge, drive 8 miles south on Colorado 9. On a sharp corner of Colorado 9, turn west onto the 850 road (Blue Lakes road). Continue on Blue Lakes road as it climbs west. Near 1.4 miles, if the gate is closed, you'll have to park in this area because Colorado Springs Utilities has closed the remaining road to the dam. Follow the road another 3/4 mile to reach the dam.
Closed about 1/2 mile up from the 850/851 road junction.
