Part of the Missionary Ridge trails system.

Steven’s Creek Trail is a 7.25-mile trail near the north end of Missionary Ridge trail system. Steven’s Creek gains over 3,500 feet from the parking area to its intersection with Missionary Ridge Trail.
The Missionary Ridge trail network is an unknown gem even to most locals. There are multiple trailheads that offer a selection of generally snow-free, three-season hikes in the low country. In spring, aspen corridors are carpeted with purple larkspur and sunny dandelion. Spears of lupine and alpine rose fill green glades with sublime fragrance. Look out from the well-earned ridgetop to the La Plata range and the San Juan Mountains. Great review in The Durango Herald.

Steven's Creek in the fall!
