Trail Highlights
Continue on the road past the gate and begin to climb along the north side of Straight Creek. The trail parallels I-70 the entire way up to the Eisenhower Tunnel. The trail, an old double-track road, will cross Straight Creek a few times as you climb gradually up the valley through a lodge pole pine forest. Straight Creek runs down from the Continental Divide at the Eisenhower Tunnel along I-70 and into the Blue River in Silverthorne. It is the main water supply for the town of Dillon.

Gate Policy: If a gate is closed upon arrival, leave it closed after you go through. If it is open, leave it open. Leaving a closed gate open may put cattle in danger. Closing an open gate may cut them off from water. Please be respectful, leave gates as found.
