Quick Facts

Johnny Bull Trail

Satellite and Topo Map

General Description

As this trail steadily winds up the creek drainage to the Calico Trail, the route switches its general direction several times. The spruce-fir environment and its associated groves of aspen, Douglas fir, juniper, and sedge are interrupted by stream crossings and lush meadows. This is the trail of choice for wildlife sightings. A trail crew in the course of one day saw three bears (a sow with cubs), a group of three bull elk, and numerous deer. Twenty-eight species of birds, including nesting golden eagles, have been discovered in this area.

The private land access may deter extensive use by hikers. After intersecting the Calico Trail, scenic views of the various San Juan peaks and mesa tops can be seen by going 0.5 mile south to Calico Peak or north toward Johnny Bull Mountain.
