The Morrison Trail is now reached via the new Bear Creek Trailhead. From Dolores on Highway 145, travel east for 22 miles. The trailhead is clearly marked on the highway, and begins about 1/4 mile east (upstream) from the confluence of Bear Creek and the Dolores River. Beginning on the Bear Creek trail, the Morrison Trail junction is ¼ mile from the trailhead. The trail climbs out of the Dolores River valley and tops the Haycamp Mesa in 2 ¼ miles at 9785 ft. The trail crosses Rock Springs Road (FDR #556), and then descends into Lost Canyon, where it also crosses the Lost Canyon Road (FDR #560). The trail climbs out of Lost Canyon, then gradually drops down in the Chicken Creek drainage and meets up with the Chicken Creek Trail. You can either turn left (east) and climb out of Chicken Creek to Transfer, or continue on down the Chicken Creek Trail.
