Find the yellow pole at the entrance to the meadow. From there, cross the road and hike about fifty feet straight into a thinner patch of the forest with some open space between the birch and aspen trees. LOOK FOR THE SILVER DUCK TAPE! From there it will not take very long for you to find a flat four-wheel drive road that lies parallel to an old timey pipeline. This manmade structure is often covered by mosses, grass, and dirt but it is very noticable and obvious to the eye. NOTE! This road is closed to vehicle traffic, although authorized crew members take vehicles on it so that they may maintain and inspect the pipeline. For those of you familiar with The Shadowlands and the Darkside, this is that same pipeline of historical yore which still provides the city of Lead with water.
After locating the old timey pipe, hike back towards the Forest Service campground for about 8 to 10 minutes. Look for a cairn next to the pipe (the letter H is included as a hint) and turn left into the woods to follow the not-so-established trail. At the time of this writing, the hike can be refered to as "rustic", however, you should not have to hurdle your way over downed trees. Follow the cut logs and other clues. DUCK TAPE! FOLLOW THE DUCK TAPE! While on the trail, you'll walk by at least three large boulders before you end up on the right-hand side of the crag. Please tread lightly! This super-biodiverse area is full of flora and fauna that nature nuts will go gaga over. The entire hike takes about 20 minutes and is about the same level of difficulty as the hike to Blue Sky.
