Spraddle Creek: Drive to the Main Puma Velvet Sneaker Vail exit (Exit 176) off Interstate 70. At the roundabout at the bottom of the exit ramp, turn right on the signed Spraddle Creek Road. The lower parking lot is 0.1 miles up the road on your left, but should not be used unless the upper lot is full Puma Velvet Sneaker or you do not have four wheel drive. Since the Spraddle Creek jeep road starts at the upper lot, continue past the lower lot and drive to the entrance to the Spraddle Creek Estates, 0.7 miles from I 70. Do not park here but turn right and drive a short distance up a steep hill on the dirt road to the upper parking area by ranch buildings. The Forest Service outhouse helps identify the parking area.
