The Hessie Trail Head entrance to the Indian Peaks Wilderness Area. You can drive to this sign with a 4WD, but there are only a few parking spots here. You may need to park a quarter mile back or so.

After an initial rise of 500 ft. early in the hike, this picture more or less represents the real gateway to our hike. We hiked up and around to the left and eventually ended up on the same ridge line as the peak seen at the top center of this picture.
