Description

Weathering Heights Dome is another South Platte dome with mostly granite slab and a bit of crack.

Getting There

From Colorado Springs, take US Hwy 24 to the town of Lake George. Immediately west of Lake George, turn right onto County Road 77 (paved) as if heading for Tarryall Reservoir. Stay on CR 77 for about 10-15 minutes until you see the bridge over Tarryall Creek. Turn right onto CR 211/Matukat Rd. Before crossing the bridge, zero your trip odometer. Drive 6.1 miles on Matukat Rd. (dirt), and park on the side of the road near a cairn.

You can see the dome (see photos) to the east down towards where Tarryall Creek empties into the South Platte River. Hike (bushwhack) down the steep hill essentially straight towards the dome. There will be an occasional cairn marking the path with the least amount of deadfall and brush.
