Description

The Bear Head Mountain top is a mile long ridge of pinnacles, blocks, fins and mounds just south of the SE base of Laramie Peak. The ridge rock has steep featured zones of granite rock that also offers crack systems. There have been several fires since the mid 90's on its slopes and since the terrain is quite rugged fires have not been suppressed. The sides are scattered with fallen burned trees. Some of my photos of this area were before any major fires.
FS 640 off Cottonwood Park closed Sept 1 for Elk Hunting Details

Getting There

The best access if from the Arapaho Trail 2-track. The west end of the Arapaho Trail is a little south of where the Bear Canyon Rd crosses Bear Creek. It's east end is a west turn off of the Cottonwood Park Rd about 1/2 mile north of Jct. Fletcher Park Rd. This end of Rd 640 goes through a ranch site with the road passing between the house and the barns.
