Coal Creek - Segment No. 1


Central Bear



From the North boundary of Lot 1, Section 13 down to the confluence with East Fork Coal Creek.
From Smoot, take highway 89 about 16 miles south to the national forest boundary; then continue on the highway another 3.2 miles and look for a two track road (BLM Road 4216) that takes off to the east (left) just as the paved road turns sharply west. Take the two-track road (that parallels lower Coal Creek) about 4 miles to where the road bends sharply to the right (south). Notice a small tributary coming in from the north (left). This is actually the East Fork of Coal Creek, but if you go up this stream a couple hundred feet, you'll see most of the flow coming in from another stream on the left side (northwest). This is where the Coal Creek instream flow segment begins - and extends on upstream for about 4 miles.
