Trail Overview

Eight Mile Mesa B (#651B) forks to the left off of the main road about half a mile from the first fork to the right for Eight Mile Mesa A. It's just under a mile long and an easy rut road with a few rocks and some dips through pine trees and meadows of wildflowers in the late spring and early summer. There are a couple disturbed primitive campsites along the road close to a gate, which should be left as found after passing. At the end of the road you will find a campsite with views of the Blanco River below and the San Juan Mountains to the East. In late spring/early summer, there are often plentiful wildflowers. There is weak cellular service depending upon trail location and provider here.


The road is a smooth dirt rutted road only one vehicle wide. Easy driving with no climbs.
