|From the Bull Gulch, FR186, road you head down Herring Creek. The road is a two track that is easy. It follows the creek through an open area before heading through a short section of aspen trees. Back out in the open, the road continues to follow the creek out into open terrain that is grazed. You will cross a cattle guard and follow a fence line to a large "Y" intersection. This is the Herring Park, FR174, road.
