(Comanche Peak Wilderness)
Creek begins in the Comanche Peak Wilderness at about 11,000 feet near the
Brackenbury Trail. It travels down a deep spruce-covered valley and empties
into Comanche Reservoir. Exiting the reservoir dam, it flows through the Sky
Ranch and eventually joins the South Fork Poudre River. The stream above Comanche
Reservoir is small, swift and more difficult to access. Beaver Creek is larger
below the reservoir and offers better opportunity for catching brook trout.
