    To hike
    From Westcliffe take Hwy 69 North to just north of Hillside and turn onto Lake Creek Road # 198. Follow the dirt road for about two miles, turn left at the Forest Service sign for Brush Lakes. The road is very rocky but is negotiable in a 2-wheel drive vehicle. Take this road all the way to the end (that is where the trailhead is and also the Rainbow Trail). Take the North Brush Trail to the Crossover Trail.
