Halfmoon Creek- Leadville, CO

It's time to get into the Colorado high country! Just outside of Leadville and in the shadows of Mount Massive and Mount Elbert lies Halfmoon Creek. We will run and camp off of the Champion Mill side of this trail (NOT the significantly tougher Iron Mike side). That said this trail is mainly a forest service road and is accessible by stock HIGH clearance 4x4's so long as you have good all-terrain or mud-terrain tires. The only notable feature of this trail is the first river crossing which can be as deep as upper-fender, hence the July timing of this trip to allow snow melt to run its course so the crossing shouldn't be anywhere near as deep as it was last time I ran the trail. I will keep an eye on the level of the crossing to ensure nobody is putting their vehicle though anything too crazy, however I would ensure your diff breathers are tucked up high/relocated (other Toyota's I'm looking at you) and then this trail should be no problem! As usual, feel free to ask questions if you have any!
