Denny Creek Trailhead Ride Details $195 per rider

2 Hour Ride

The Denny Creek Trailhead is located 12 miles west of Buena Vista, with a paved parking log on the right. This is a beautiful mountain paradise no matter what the season - wildflowers in the summer, beautiful foliage in the fall and great snowshoeing in the winter.

2 Hour Ride The trails offer an authentic mountain experience as they go through the Collegiate Peaks Wilderness. The trail climbs up Denny Gulch with the peaceful sounds of Denny Creek rushing by. You will hike through forest, cross log bridges and have options to reach Hartenstein Lake, Browns Pass or the biggest prize, nearby "fourteener" Mount Yale (14,196').

2 Hour Ride At 1.25 miles from the trailhead, a junction exists. Turn right to continue the long haul to Mt. Yale, another 3.25 miles (one way) of rigorous hiking on a well-marked trail to the summit. Stay left to continue up Denny Gulch, and at approximately 0.6 miles, the trail reaches another junction.

2 Hour Ride Turn left to continue to Hartenstein Lake (11,451'), a high elevation lake surrounded by many peaks including Turner Peak (13,232'). Or turn right to hike through a beautiful meadow that eventually ascends to Browns Pass, located on the Continental Divide.

Directions: From Buena Vista go west at the stoplight at Main St (CR 306), follow west 12 miles to Denny Creek parking area on the right side of the road.
