Trail: Kobey Park Roads #103 & #508 - Lenado
Difficulty: moderate
Description: Kobey Park, above the old Sawmill at Lenado, is a historic logging area with many spur roads. It affords beautiful views of the Elk Mountains, Williams Mountains, and Sawatch Range. This is a favorite jeeping ground in the autumn when the leaves are turning colors. Most of the trip does not require 4WD and the 4WD area is fairly well maintained. This road is used by mountain bikers, 4WDs, dirt bikes and, in winter, snowmobilers. While camping sites are numerous, water is scarce. From Lenado continue up the 4WD road, #103. This road is sometimes called Christmas Tree Road since it winds back and forth across the mountain. There are numerous spur roads that lead nowhere. Please stay on the main road. At the intersection between Roads 103 and 508, keep straight on Road 508 to Kobey Park (Road 103 goes to the right, intersects with Road 526, and heads to the Margy Hut). Mt. Yeckel can be accessed from Road 526.
Directions: Travel west 7 miles from Aspen on Highway 82 to the Woody Creek turnoff on your right. At the bottom of the hill and across the bridge turn left to the Woody Creek Tavern. About a 1/4 mile past the tavern make a sharp right onto Road 18 and drive 10 miles to Lenado. From there continue on up the road to Kobey Park.
