Satellite and Topo Map

General Description

The easy part of the trail is the first four miles along the Stewart Creek. After that point you must bushwhack up out of the drainage and across a side ridge of San Luis Peak (14,014'). This route is unmarked but used by many as access to San Luis Peak so a topo map and orienteering skills are necessary. A faint route can be used to guide you to the Skyline Trail #465 and back down to Eddiesville. Bighorn sheep, mule deer, and elk are often seen along the trail.

Directions from Gunnison: Take Hwy 50 east to Hwy 114. Go through Cochetopa Canyon and then turn right on the access road to Dome Lakes and Old Agency Work Center, After about 4 miles turn right to go to the Old Agency Work Center and Forest Service Road #790 or go a few miles more and turn right just after Upper Dome Reservoir to get on Forest Service road #794. Take the Stewart Creek Road about 5 miles until you see the sign for the Stewart Creek Trail.
