The newly constructed trailhead for Chicken Creek allows vehicles a place to park off the main road. There is also a trailhead for Chicken Creek Trail (or termination of the trail, which ever way you are hiking) at Mancos State Park. Keep in mind there is a fee if you park your vehicle at Mancos State Park. The trail immediately drops into Chicken Creek drainage where it merges with the Morrison Trail. Chicken Creek Trail turns south at the bottom of the canyon and the Morrison Trail heads north. The upper portion of the Chicken Creek Trail is motorized down to the junction with the Rim Trail, approximately 1.5 miles. From that point on it becomes a non-motorized trail the rest of the way until you reach the lower end at Mancos State Park.
This hike is listed as One-Way.
When hiking several trails on a single "hike", log it with a generic name that describes the hike. Then link the trails traveled, check out the example.
