Notes from Karst: Approaching from the southeast, from CO-145 take CR-38/CR-52 for 15 miles. It is a hard packed wide road. The Middle Peak Road takes you to East Lone Cone. Do not turn on FR-616 since it is blocked off with fallen trees and berms. Instead continue on Middle Peak Rd, which is somewhat rocky, but nothing that cannot be done on a big dual sport bike with moderate skills. Eventually you will see on your right hand side the other side of FR-616. You can walk from there to the old pass location at N37 50 00.7 W108 08 25.3. The pass location on the new road is somewhat undefined, but by unanimous committee decision we put it at N37 49 57.9 W108 08 35.0.
