Meridian Trailhead

This small trailhead provides access to the Meridian Trail and is at the end of a short, rough road. Although it has a corral, there is little room to turn or park horse trailers of any size.


Drive west from Denver on US 285 approximately 28 miles to the traffic light before the top of Crow Hill. Turn right (northwest) on to Park County 43 and drive in a northwesterly direction for 6.8 miles to a "Y" in the road. Bear right. Go 1.5 miles, passing Meridian Campground on the left. Take the next left and turn left on Prospector Way. Go .8 miles past Camp Rosalie to the trailhead. The last mile is rough and can be muddy.
