South Chicago Creek Trailhead

This little-used trailhead provides access to the South Chicago Creek Trail.


Drive almost 9 miles south of Idaho Springs on Highway 103 to the Hefferman Gulch Road (FDR 247). Go right on FDR 247 1.25 mile, crossing from the east side of the creek to the west side about halfway up, then back to the east side just before the trailhead.
