Williams Creek Hike
Drive north on Piedra Road (#631) about 22 miles. Turn right on Williams Creek Road (#640) past Williams Creek Reservoir and Cimarrona Campground, continuing on to the trailhead at the end of the road. The trail follows Williams Creek northward into the Weminuche Wilderness. The old Spanish name for Williams Creek was Huerto: garden-like. The first few miles of Williams Creek do give the impression of a gigantic, walled garden. Across the creek to the right is a group of peaks eroded from volcanic rock. Set your own destination – it continues on 14 miles to the Continental Divide.
