Notes from Karst: Approaching from the southeast, from CO-145 take CR-38 and CR-52 for 22 miles on a hard-packed wide gravel road to CR-47, and take it for 2.4 miles. CR-47 is a bit rocky and muddy in places, but nothing that cannot be done on any big dual sport bike with minimal skills (unless it is raining when there can be a few mud holes). We got caught in hail storm at the top, so we left in a hurry. On CR-52 you pass the turn-off for East Lone Cone Pass.
