Trail Overview

South Cottonwood Road is a maintained county road that leads to the popular Cottonwood Lake and the Cottonwood Lake Campground and Cabins. The road follows South Cottonwood Creek past the campgrounds then narrows and becomes a rocky climb to above treeline. Dispersed camping spots become limited where the road narrows. There can be shallow water crossings depending on the season. At the top of the trail is an old abandoned mine where rock hounds still come to find treasures.
