Trail Overview

Aztec Peak trail is an easy road to a fire tower at the top of a 7,748' mountain. The road follows Workman Creek while accessing several Forest Service recreation areas and trailheads. Almost any vehicle can do this road.There is a Forest Service gate part way up the trail that can be closed when snow blocks the road. A couple of people from the area told us the gate is left open when the road is open.Workman Creek Falls can be spectacular when there is a heavy flow of water. Below the waterfall, Workman Creek is stocked twice a year during the early part of summer. Above the falls, the creek supports a small naturally-reproducing population of rainbow trout. There are no native fish found in Workman Creek at this time.You will find "Flintstone Village" just before you get to the tower.
