How to find us

Directions

If you are coming from the East  (from Colorado Springs):

  • Take Highway 24 west-bound from Colorado Springs.
  • Turn left (south) onto County Road 23. This turnoff is located approximately 15.5 miles west of Lake George. The turnoff is at the sign (on the left side of the road) for the Chaparral Store.
  • Go about 2.8 miles south on Highway 23 until you reach the "T" in the road
  • Turn right onto County Road 59.
  • Go approximately 5.5 miles west, past Chaparral store and the ranch house, until you reach the gate to the gravel pit and launch site on your right (North side of the road).

If you are coming from the West  (from Fairplay/Hartsel via Highway 285):

  • After passing through Hartsel (don't blink!), immediately turn right/south onto Highway 9
  • Immediately turn left/east onto County Road 59.
  • Drive approximately 5.3 miles east. The gate to the gravel pit and launch site will be on your left (North side of the road).

Important: Please do not approach the launch site from Elkhorn Road (CR 15) off of Highway 24. This is a private road and the gate will likely be locked. Instead, please take CR 59 from Hartsel to the West or CR 23 to CR 59 from the East.

Important: Please do not speed when passing the ranch east of the launch site on CR59! The ranch is home to our land owners, who deserve our respect for their property and safety.

As always there is no camping on site, no driving off of roads, and close the gate behind you.
