Directions

From I-70, take Hwy 24 (exit 171) south towards the town of Minturn. Follow Hwy 24 for about 14 miles and turn right onto Homestake Road. Follow Homestake Road for about 7.5 miles, then turn right onto Missouri Creek Road. Follow Missouri Creek Road for about 2 miles and a small parking area and the trailhead is down from the road on the left. If you continue onto Missouri Creek Road for a short distance Fancy Lake trailhead is on the left by a small parking lot and restrooms on the right. The two trailheads are less than 100 yards apart. You can park either parking lot, but the trail starts at Missouri Lakes trailhead and ends at Fancy Lake trailhead.
