Description

The Dry Fork trail is accessed from the parking lot on County Road 208. From Hwy 160 West turn right on Lightner Creek Rd. then right on Country Road 208. Stay right at the fork (it is 2.7 mi from Lightner Creek Rd. to the parking lot). The entrance to the parking lot is marked with a sign for Hofhein's Connection.

After just under a mile of gentle climbing, you'll come to the junction with Hofhein's Connection. Dry Fork Trail is clearly marked. The trail ascends gently through scrub oak and pine. It provides winding smooth singletrack, with some small rocky sections thrown in for good measure. Ends at the Colorado Trail.
