Joe Lott Trailhead (recgovnpsdata) - Search Nearby - Added by Chris Engelsman

A shaded trail to escape the summer heat and follows Joe Lott Creek.

The Joe Lott Trailhead starts at Castle Rock Campground and follows the Joe Lott Creek which has tall old growth trees to provide shade in the summer. Joe Lott Trail #051 is an out-and-back, so you can go as far as you like and turn around. We went 1.5 miles and had to cross the river 3-times. At the third crossing, the creek was too wide to cross without getting wet due to high runoff, so we turned around. 

The Silver King Mine Interpretive Center is the terminus of the trail which is approximately 6.5 miles from the trailhead which starts at 6,200 feet in the Castle Rock Campground and finishes at 9,800 feet in elevation. 

There are vault toilets at the campground and the Silver King Mine Interpretive Center. There is a day use fee of $8.
