Recreation near Bryce Estates
Spruce Creek Road is the gateway to great trails to popular destinations like Mohawk Lakes, and Bryce Estates is located just off this county road. Take the U.S. Forest Service Road that Spruce Creek or Crown Drive funnel into, and you'll arrive at the Spruce Creek trailhead, which connects to the Burro Trail which leads back to the base of Peak 9. Further up the trail, you'll cross the Wheeler Trail that extends from Hoosier Pass to Copper Mountain, and there you can see stunning Continental Falls that flow from the lakes situated in high meadows at the foot of the Tenmile Range.
One of the winter-access back-country cabins in the Tenmile Summit Huts system, Francie's Cabin, is accessible from these trails. And many more lakes and peaks as well.
