Description

The Chimayosos Trail has a reasonably uniform grade and is a good route for those seeking solitude and a more challenging experience. From Beatty's Flats, follow Beatty's Trail 25 up the Rito del Padre one mile to Chimayosos Trail 246. Turn west up the Rito Azul drainage and proceed upstream for half a mile. Near the junction on the Rito Azul and the Rito de los Chimayosos, the trail continues up the east bank of the Rito de los Chimayosos. The trail passes through spruce forests and meadows, making two stream crossings in the next mile. Continue up the east side, crossing meadows with views of the Truchas Peaks. Expect to find multiple trails in the meadows. After a few miles, the trail climbs away from the creek and passes through a wooded area where it may be difficult to follow. The trail ends at the junction with Jack's Creek Trail 257.
