Lumpy Ridge Trailhead was completed in May of 2007 and is the sole trailhead for accessing any of the Lumpy Ridge destinations from the south. It replaces the previous two trailheads in this area: Twin Owls Trailhead and Gem Lake Trailhead.
From the intersection of US 36 and US 34 in Estes Park, take Wonderview Ave. north for 0.4 miles to MacGregor Ave. Drive north on MacGregor Ave. for 0.7 miles, where the road turns abruptly east (and the name changes to Devils Gulch Rd.). Drive northeast on Devils Gulch Rd for 0.6 miles to the turnoff for Lumpy Ridge Trailhead. Turn left (north) and drive the 0.3 miles to the parking area.
Camping is not allowed at the trailhead, nor is drinking water available. There are pit toilets.
"The man who goes alone can start today, but he who travels with another must wait till the other is ready."
--Henry David Thoreau
