This is a somewhat obscure area of the South Platte within the Top of the World area. The older Hubbel guide with its picture probably was the main enticement to explore around these parts. Amazing what a photo can do. There are some small, very interesting looking formations in the area. Approaches have changed a bit with the road closures.
Top Of The World is off of CO Hwy 126 just past the town of Buffalo Creek. Park along the hwy 2.6 miles South East of Buffalo and walk up Fire Road 538 going left at the junction after 1.7 miles, the right hand road is signed and leads to Top Of The World Campground (closed). Continue on the main road for another 1.8 miles to the old parking area, cross a fence and follow trails to Chair Rocks.
