East Inlet Trailhead provides access to the East Inlet Trail on the west side of Rocky Mountain National Park, Colorado.
From the junction of US 34 and West Portal Road in Grand Lake, drive east on West Portal Road for 1.1 miles to CR633 (stay left at the "Y" with Grand Ave after 0.3 miles). A sign will mark this as the turnoff for the Tonahutu and North Inlet Trails. Turn north onto CR633. The Tonahutu Trailhead will be reached after about 0.2 miles. Follow the signs east another 0.1 miles to the North Inlet Trailhead.
Camping is not allowed at the trailhead, nor is drinking water available. There are pit toilets.
"After the first glass, you see things as you wish they were. After the second, you see things as they are not. Finally, you see things as they really are, which is the most horrible thing in the world."
