The Hooper Lake trail begins at the end of Forest Sevice Road #610 (4wd high clearance vehicle needed) and becomes the North Derby Trail after passing Hooper Lake and crossing onto the Routt National Forest. It has a relatively gentle incline and passes near several small ponds and North Fork Derby Creek. It is recommended to have good map and compass skills for this area as there is so much undulating terrain and multiple trail intersections.
