Getting There: From Ely head south on Hwy 50/93 for 7 miles. Take a left and
follow the signs to Cave Lake State Park.
Directions for Steptoe Creek Trail: As you are driving up State Route 486 to Cave
Lake State Park you will see a numer of turnouts on your right. Park at the last
one before you get to the paved road that goes up to the actual lake. You'll see a
wood sign in front of you for the Steptoe Creek Trail. Follow the trail, parallelling
the road you just came up. When you get to the end either turn around and go
back on the trail or hop onto the paved road to get back to your car that way.
