A portion of this route travels through Routt National Forest, and unlicensed vehicles are permitted. The last section of the trail is incredibly beautiful with views of the Colorado River meandering through a large valley. There is some good camping along the last ten miles. No seasonal closures.
Kremmling was first called Kinsey City, and had a post office from 1881 to 1885. By 1895, the town was known as Kremmling, named after its founder, Rudolph Kremmling. In 1906, the railroad reached Kremmling and the town became a major shipping point for the region. Today Kremmling is a quiet mountain town with a population of about 1,500.
