Maps: The trail to and the yurt itself are on the Wheeler Peak
7.5 min. USGS topo map. For those of you wishing to ski out towards Gold
Hill, I recommend the Red River 7.5 min. USGS topo map. I also suggest
you obtain the Carson National Forest map. All of these maps are
provided for your use at the yurts.
Directions to the Bull of the Woods Yurt- You follow trail 90
from the parking area to the yurt. This trail is steep and straight
forward. You will want to stay on the hiker’s route and not deviate
along the horse trails. About 1 mile up the trail is the Long Canyon
turn off. Do not take this trail. Instead continue to follow the signs
for Bull of the Woods Meadow. After approximately 1.8 miles you will
reach the top of the canyon and a trail intersection. One trail goes to
the right towards Wheeler Peak and another goes to the left towards Gold
Hill. You will take neither of these trails but rather continue straight
ahead into the large open meadow. The yurt is at the northwest corner of
