The Kinney Creek Trail, #22, is located south of Granby, in the Williams Fork area. It leads up Kinney Creek to intersect the St. Louis Divide-Jones Pass Trail, #17.

The Kinney Creek Trail begins on a gradual slope and follows Kinney Creek through large spruce-fir stands. Within 1/2 mile, the small valley becomes much narrower and the trail becomes much steeper. At this point, camping spots become more limited. The Horseshoe Lake Trail, #23, takes off to the southeast shortly after reaching the Byers Peak Wilderness boundary. The end of the trail provides access to Lake Evelyn and St. Louis Divide-Jones Pass trails. Elk are commonly seen on the upper part of the trail.

Directions: From Granby, Travel west on Highway 40 approximately 14 miles to County Road 3/Forest Road 139. Travel south on Road 3/139 approximately 17 miles, passing Williams Fork Reservoir, to Forest Road 138. Go south on 138 approximately 5 miles to Kinney Creek Road/Forest Road 141. Go northeast on Rd. 141 about 4 miles to the trailhead.
