Description

At the eastern end, Larkspur Trail 260 starts in a meadow at a junction with Hamilton Mesa Trail 249. The trail descends continuously to the Pecos River. About a half mile before the river, there is a junction with Bob Grounds Trail 270. The Larkspur Trail is very muddy and boggy during snowmelt and the rainy season. At the river crossing, there is a bridge that is suitable for both hikers and horses. The bridge crosses to the west side of the river where numerous trails lead to other portions of the Wilderness.
