Description

West Monument Creek Trail splits off of the Stanley Rim Trail (722) near Stanley Reservoir. It's a challenging means to descend from the area.

The first 2.5 miles descend a very steep and lesser-used forest service road, with grades up to 20%. The road dead-ends at a ridge. At mile 2.5 along the road, there is a poorly marked hike-a-bike trail that climbs over the north side of this ridge. This portion of trail is loose with granite scree. It continues over the ridge for about a half mile, until it meets the forest service road on the other side of the ridge which descends into AFA property and eventually meets the AFA Falcon Trail Loop.
