From access #1, the Dutch Creek Trail starts high and ends low. For the first few miles basically it follows a ridgeline at 10,000 ft. Within 3.5 miles, the trail tops out in open meadows with wide-ranging views to both the east and west. To the west, one can see out over the width of the Hermosa country for a clear view of the La Platas. To the east, one can see the Needle Mountains. Coming down off the ridge, the trail becomes obscure in places, dropping down into Stag Draw. Within two miles, the trail intercepts Dutch Creek and an accessible water supply. Grassy hillsides and a few, fairly open parks alongDutch Creek have the best campsites. Once the trail breaks off at Dutch Creek, access to either water or grazing becomes limited.
