Kurt’s Yurt is nestled in the trees just below timberline in the shadow of Mt. Sherman
From Fairplay, CO, head south on US 285. Head past the intersection of US 285 and CO Hwy 9 continuing on US 285. Just before the top of the hill and a Speed Limit 65 sign, take a right into a small stand of aspens on the side of the road onto County Road 18, which is also known as Four Mile Creek Road. At the fork, continue straight on Four Mile Creek Road. The road turns to dirt at this point. When you pass the old mine (Leavick Mill), you are almost there. The road will make a final rise into the final incredible vista of the mountain valley, at which time you will take a left on to Silver Horseshoe Road. Silver Horseshoe Road makes a curve to the left. Immediately after this curve, make a left hand turn on to Silver Horseshoe Lane, which is unmarked, rarely driven and doesn’t resemble a road until you are on it. Drive down to the green gate and park your vehicle so that it does not block the gate. The yurt is directly downhill in the trees about 30 yards from this point.
