NOTE: This is not an official trailhead and can only be accessed in Summer months when the pull-off is dry.From Fairplay, take Colorado 9 to the town of Alma. From the center of Alma, continue north on Highway 9 for about 1/2 mile and turn left onto County Road 6 (dirt). Start measuring mileage from here and drive 1.4 miles on CR 6 and turn left onto Quartzville road. Near 2.2 miles, stay left at a confusing intersection. Near 3.5 miles, pass the intersection of Zinc Road. Continue right up the Quartzville road for another 0.1 mile to find a small, unmarked pull-off on the east side of the road.
In Winter, there is no parking available near Moose Creek and the pull-off is usually not plowed. Please use Kite Lake access in Winter.
