Easy 6 mile roundtrip trail with around 650 feet of elevation gain follows the South St. Vrain Creek through lodgepole pine, spruce, fir and aspen.  Named for Ceran St. Vrain (1802 - 1870), a fur trader, politician and settler who established several trading posts and military forts along this creek and the South Platte River.  The trail begins over a long bridge with good up and down-stream views.

Optional Lunch/Refreshment after the hike at Walnut Brewery located at 1123 Walnut Street in Boulder, Phone[masked]-1345.  

Carpooling: Meet at 8:30am at the dirt parking lot located northeast of Hwy 93 and Hwy 170 (road to Eldorado Springs) where we'll form some carpools. From Boulder, meet us at the trailhead at 9am.

Directions to the Trailhead: From Boulder drive 5.5 miles north on Highway 36, turn west onto Left Hand Canyon Drive. About five miles up Left Hand Canyon, follow the right fork to Jamestown. Go through Jamestown, continuing over the top of the hill and past the end of the pavement. Ceran St. Vrain Trailhead lies about one-half mile beyond the end of the pavement, a quarter-mile up Riverside Drive, on the north side of James Canyon Drive.

See you there!

    It was a fun walk in the clouds! Finally made it up top Miller Rock - a little scary being in the fog! Always a fun group of intelligent hikers who enjoy a good micro brew!

      See you both on the trail. Miller Rock is up the jeep trail - keep hanging left and look for the aspen grove. Miller Rock will be on your right, I think.

    Definite Maybe. Usually do not plan that far ahead for simple hike, but this is an attractive area.
