Eider Creek Trail
Connector Trail Also Functions as a Quick Workout
This short trail connects to the Deep Creek Trail and is great for a quick workout and views. The trail climbs pretty steeply before intersecting the Deep Creek Trail.
From Telluride, drive one mile west on Highway 145. Turn right onto Forest Road 637 (Mill Creek Road) near the Shell gas station. High clearance, 4-wheel drive vehicles recommended. Drive approximately 0.5 miles to the first hairpin turn. This is the trailhead. Note that the trail is also open to bikers and horses.
