Notes from Karst: Dipper Gap. Mostly easy to get to. CR-64 is hard packed county road. Going North from CR-64, it is potholed, but doable even a street bike with a little bit of skill. Coming from the South and ¼ mile before Dipper Gap, where the road turns West, there is a gate. It looks like it is not used much. No houses in sight, so nobody to give you a hard time. I went back the same way I came in, so I do not know what kind of access there is North of the gap. Dipper Gap itself is in a grassy field, a 100 yards or so from the road.

For some history, check "Archaelogical Excavations at Dipper Gap: A Stratified Butte Top
Site in Northeastern Colorado" by Michael Douglas Metcalf, Colorado State University, 1974.
More recent activity in the area involves the drilling in the Dakota D-2 sand of the Dipper Gap oil field.
