Trail Overview

This route starts where CR 270 enters BLM land and turns into CR 272. Continue along CR 272 as it goes from a two-lane dirt road and enters Forest Service land. Amazing views of Mount Princeton and Mount Antero are available for the first part of this route. The road reaches an intersection and the route continues to the left, toward Browns Creek Trailhead. The trail starts off fairly mild and wide for the first half, but after the turn, the road becomes single-lane and is bumpy and rocky throughout. Multiple dispersed campsites can be found along the route and the Browns Creek Trail provides access to Mount Antero (alternate route) and the Colorado Trail.
