5 (0=Paved, 6=Very Difficult 4WD)
Very rough and narrow. Passing another vehicle would be difficult. In wet/snowy/icy conditions the road would be extremely difficult and very likely impossible. No bathrooms or other facilities. The coordinates are a short drive past the East Willow Creek 4WD Trailhead described in Gerry Roach's Colorado's Thirteeners: From Hikes to Climbs.
From the junction of Main Street and Loma Street in Creede drive .6 miles north on Mineral County Road 503. The road quickly turns to gravel. Turn right onto an unmarked road (CR 502, FS 502.2 on Forest Service maps) and drive 3 miles. Turn left and drive another .7 miles. This is the lower, 2WD trailhead. It is located on a switchback and has room for a small number of vehicles. The remaining road to the upper trailhead is very rough. Drive 2.25 miles on the very rough and narrow road to the unmarked trailhead.
Unknown, but at the very least the final 2.25 miles of rough road are completely unmaintained in winter.
