We will park in the parking area near the East Portal of the Moffat Tunnel. The trailhead for the South Boulder Creek Trail (FS 900) is located in the northwest corner of the parking lot. We parallel South Boulder Creek on a wide, well-traveled trail for about 1.8 miles to the junction with Crater Lakes Trail (FS 819). The trail ascends steeply at first, then more gradually until reaching the middle Crater Lakes. Return is by the same route.


Sorry it is past the registration deadline for this event.
