Trail from meeker to adams lake/heartlake
Hi all does anyone know of a trail or set of trails that lead from meeker over to the Adams lake/ heart lake area. I've looked at some mvum maps and it looks like there are roads or trails that skirt the edge over the wilderness. But I was hoping for some input from someone who knows the area.
I think you have to go in from the Dotsero side. I know you can also go over to Buford and go up from there but I don't believe you can drive to the lake. You can look right down into Adams lake from this side but you cant cross over the canyon. At least not by vehicle as far as I know.
Just wondering how you get over there from the Buford side? The wilderness area would be to the north so no access I can think of there and to the west there is a large canyon that I didn't think was passable in a vehicle. I know you can get there from Dotsero off of I-70.
Ok well we actually started above rifle gap reservoir, but you can go from Buford as well. we took FS road 832, to FS825, to Fs211, to Fs245 (which is the Buford Newcastle road). We took that north to FS601 which goes by meadow lake, and we followed that all the way across; it goes over Blair mountain, by the Adams lake spur, and comes out at heart lake. Then from there we followed coffee pot road down to dotsero. It ended up being something like 75 miles of trail.
Gotcha. I wasn't aware there was any road off of FS 601 running across the canyon. I have always ran 601 past Meadow Lake, past Cow Lake then by Blair Mountain and the trail ended on the edge of a canyon and you could look directly down into Adams lake. I'll have to find the Adams Lake spur. Its a nice area.
