Dome Rock Trail - Teller County
Ownership: None Listed
Description: This inviting trail follows an old stage road along cascading Fourmile Creek, leading to Dome Rock itself, an interesting geological formation. This spot can be good for birds of prey, including Northern Goshawk (in winter) and Golden Eagle. Note that from mid-September to mid-July the trail past the ruins of Jackrabbit Lodge is closed for the lambing season of the resident bighorn sheep.

Habitat: Mixed Conifer Forest, Streamside Willow, Lowland Riparian
Directions: Take US 24 to the town of Divide; turn left (south) on CO 67 and head approximately 5.75 miles to the Fourmile Road turnoff (which is not clearly marked). Pass a fish hatchery on your left as you head approximately 2 miles to a Division of Wildlife sign indicating Dome Rock. Head down a steep hill to the parking area.
