Trail: Eagle/Thomasville Road #400
Region: Frying Pan River Valley
Difficulty: easy
Description: This road is not a four wheel drive road, but is very dangerous and slippery when wet. Do not drive on if it looks like it might rain or has recently rained. It is a beautiful drive through aspen forests and some meadows with wildflowers. People use this road to get between Eagle and the Reudi area, and also to access hiking trails and stream fishing. Crooked Creek Reservoir, at the pass, was recently acquired by the National Forest system and is open to fishing and public use. This is a beautiful and easy drive when dry. From Crooked Creek Pass you can continue on to Sylvan Lake State Recreation Area and the town of Eagle. You can also access the Eagle Lake trail, Burnt Mountain road and Lime Park. From Burnt Mountain road you can access Tellurium Lake and Last Chance Gulch trails.
Directions: From Carbondale travel east on Hwy 82 and turn left at the stoplight at Basalt. Follow the Fryingpan River Road out of Basalt and towards Ruedi Reservoir for 20 miles. Turn left onto road #400 just past Thomasville.
