Trail Overview

This is a very scenic, pastoral drive down Cimarron Road into the Uncompaghre National Forest. There are many side roads leading to various forks of the Cimarron River, with plentiful dispersed camping sites along the way. There are access points to Cowboy Lake for fishing, boating, kayaking, etc. It's an easy climb through the trees to Owl Pass at 10,114 ft and a slow-winding descent out of the National Forest to Hwy 550 outside of Ridgeway.


This is a very easy drive for any vehicle.
