Lionshead Rock hike, Minturn Colorado

Tuesday, July 19th, 2011

An often forgotten about hike is the Lionshead Rock hike out of Minturn Colorado.  It is a short 15 minute drive from the Antlers at Vail condominiums.  Drive west on Interstate 70 to Exit 171 at Dowd Junction and then head south on Highway 24 for a few miles until you arrive in the town of Minturn.  Take a left right away upon arriving into town and go across the bridge by the Saloon.  As you pass the Saloon, hang a right swinging around the building and go across the railraod tracks to Taylor Street.  Head north on Taylor street passing a number of homes (and junky cars, fridges, old snowmobiles, sinks, dishwashers, chairs, dogs, etc) until you arrive at the far end (dead end).  Find a parking spot and head to the Game Creek trail (to the East) and start going up the trail.  As you go up and past the river for about a 1/2 mile you’ll hang a RIGHT onto the trail which will take you to the Lionshead Rock.  It is about a 2 mile climb one way from the trail head.
