    From steamboat springs go north on road 129 for about twleve miles to the town of glen eden.
    Turn right on rd 64, follow for about 6 miles till forest road 440.

    Turn right follow for 3 or so miles till intersection with forest road 442.

    Welcome Home.

    Please note there is no spring at this site please bring bring your own water.

    Also note although I was told it is the intersection of 440 & 442 roads it looks like on my map it would be 440 & 441 roads.

    I will clear that up as soon as possible

    peace & love to all

    There are two version floating around. I have no clue the difference. I
    assume like all early directions they have issues, but so that you can
    see all the versions I am reposing his directions as posted to AGR.

    Spring Council Directions

    Scouting is winding down after about 6 weeks of effort, and this weekend
    a site for Spring Council was selected by those at the scout council.
    Spring Council is June 10-11, and that is where the site will be
    discussed and consented apon. Some potential gathering sites are still
    inaccessible due to snow drifts blocking the roads, but the scouts are
    satisfied there are several site alternatives for the council to consider.

    From Steamboat Springs: BRING WATER! Follow rt 40 west out of town. Turn
    north at the light on rt 129, and follow this to Clark (last stop for
    gas). Just north of Clark is the "Glen Eden" Resort. Turn right (east)
    onto CR64. (Elk River Rd). Follow rt 64 3-4 miles to FS440. Turn right
    onto FS 440, and continue past the Hinman Campground several miles to
    where FS 400 intersects with FS 442. Here's a rough map:
    http://mapper.acme.com/?ll=40.73204,-106.84187&z=15&t=M&marker0=40.70...

    This is not the site for the gathering, but the site for Spring Council!
    The road is suitable for buses and low clearance vehicles. BRING WATER!

    Rob now posted
    Figures, I found a typo after I posted this. The council site is at the
    intersection of FS 440 and 442, *not* 400 & 442. Sorry for any confusion.

    I think you are right about it being 441. In any case, there are just
    a few roads in the immediate area. Once you turn off Seed House road
    (64) (refered to as the River Road on the map) and go over the bridge
    and past Hinman campground it will be hard to go very far wrong. If I
    remember right there is one dead end road to the left before the turn
    that takes you to 441.

    I think the water pump in the Hinman campground (a short distance away)
    should be working by now. It is normally turned on for Memorial day
    weekend... but if not, bringing your own water in quantity will be
    important. If you have water filters you willb e ablke to get water
    from various places within a mile or two.

    The Clark store has gas, some groceries, a post office and other odds
    and ends, but for real supply shopping, stop in Steamboat before coming
    further north.

    Other info on finding what you need below. To understand the
    directions.. US 40 and Lincoln Ave are the same thing. Lincoln Ave is
    what is it called in town. While 40 runs east/west overall it runs
    nearly north/south through our valley. Coming from the East/South on
    40 the ski mountain is on your right. Downtown Oak Street is the next
    street to the right, Yampa to the left. The first numbered street in
    town is 3rd street where the post office and the Hot Springs are.

    Groceries: Big grocery stores are south of town. Nartural grocers are
    in town. The big stores (City Market and Safeway both offer pretty
    complete selections. Prices are a little better at Safeway. Both have
    some selection of organic produce and dairy.
    There is Bamboo Market (natural grocer) on Yampa street (One block off
    the main street) along the river near the between 10th and 11th.
    Healthy Solutions (natural grocer) is at the corner of 3rd and Lincoln.
    There is also Sweet Pea produce on Yampa street at about 7th street in
    addition to Safeway (Hwy 40 south of town) and City Market (central
    park plaza at the Mount Werner exit from 40)

    Hardware: Best selection is at ACE just west of Down town on the south
    side of US 40. The location is the next stoplight west of the turn
    onto HWY 129 in the directions. There is also stuff at Walmart in
    Central Park Plaze near the City Market. If you are looking for Lumber
    try BMC west on 20 mile road (turn at the library) or at employee owned
    Alpine Lumber on Pine Grove Road. (turn away from the ski mountain)

    Internet access: At the public library corner of US40 (Lincoln ave)
    and 20 mile road (would be 13th street if numbered) and at Mocha
    Molly's coffee shop at the corner of 7th and Lincoln.

    Hospital, Emergeny room: The local hospital is between US 40 and the
    ski mountain. Take the Mt Werner Rd exit from 40 and head toward the
    mountian. Turn left onto Steamboat Blvd. The hospital will be another
    left turn in a cout 100 yards.

    Outdoor gear: (water filters, bottles, sleeping bags, tents, warm
    stuff) can be found at Backdoor Sports on Yampa st (near 8th),
    Straightline Sports on Lincoln and 8th and at Ski Haus on the corner of
    Pine Grove Rd and US 40 South of down town. There is also a Gart
    Sports and a Walmart but for most part we like to support our local
    folks.

    Lift-up Thrift Store: Cheap used clothing and other things. Near the
    corner of 7th and Oak (one block off Lincoln the other way from Yampa
    street.

    Hot Springs: Strawberry Park Hot Springs is about 8 miles out of town
    up through Strawberry park. Developed natural setting (I know that is
    kind of contradiction in terms) ocst is about $8. Clothing optional
    after dark. No bottles or other glass. Take 8th street to park Ave to
    36 Rd. Follow 36 road to the end. The other hot springs pool is right
    in town near the corner of 3rd next to the post office. Big building,
    several pools. Showers. Will be very crowded during the gathering dates
    as the 4th of July is a busy week in town.

    Other general Beta: Local LEO are pretty tight on DUI and DUID. Don't
    mess with it. If you are coming from the West and driving down from
    I-80 on the Baggs road to Craig go the speed limit through Baggs and I
    mean when it says 25 go 25... not 26.

    If there is other local info that folks need post a question here and I
    will do my best.
