Overview and directions

The Button Rock Preserve trailhead serves as a central access point for hikers, climbers, fishermen and outdoor enthusiasts alike. Several mountains can be climbed from the trailhead, such as Button Rock, Button Rock Mountain, Coffintop Mountain and Smithy Mountain. A two mile walk along an access road will take you past Longmont Reservoir to Button Rock dam and Ralph Price Reservoir. A scenic loop can be made by taking the Sleepy Lion trail through several meadows, a popular trail suitable for all ages and dogs.
Directions to Button Rock TH: From Lyons, drive northbound on US Hwy 36 for approximately 5 miles (or 14 miles from Estes Park heading southbound) to Boulder County Road 80, well marked by the nearby Shelly's Cottages sign. Drive 3 miles down this gravel road to a gate and parking lot with room for about 30 cars. The access road across the gate leads to Longmont and Ralph Price reservoirs.
