Farmers Creek Trail # 801

The Farmers Creek trail is 7.7 miles long. It begins at Forest Road 500 and ends at Forest Trail 789 in Wason Park.

Only a few decent camping places exist along the lower portion of the trail.   Opportunities for fishing are poor.  Late fall hunting for big game exists.

The trail begins by paralleling the private fence along the Wason Ranch property for about 0.5 mile.

The trail then makes a short winding, steep climb northward away from the Rio Grande River.  The trail continues for approximately 1.0 mile over and through rolling, open grassy hills before dropping quickly into the main Farmers Creek Drainage.

After following the creek bottom for 0.5 mile, the trail will cross and begin a short, steep climb out of the main Farmers Creek Drainage.  The trail will continue a gradual climb up an aspen-covered drainage for about 1.5 miles.  Then the trail will switchback across a mixed aspen\spruce\fir covered hillside before entering several open parks with charred snags from past forest fires.  The trail will level out, pass through a small stand of spruce\fir timber, cross a tributary of West Bellow Creek, pass through several more small patches of timber and then meet FDT#789 (Wheeler Wason Trail) at the end of Wason Park.

The trail is open for the following uses: Mtn biking, Foot and Horse Travel. The upper 1/3 of the trail enters into the La Garita Wilderness. Mountain Bikes are not legal in the wilderness, must turn back.
