There are peaceful meadows and wildflowers all along the drive depending upon the season. Combining this road with Four Mile, McManus and Piedra roads makes for a 50-mile loop out of Pagosa Springs. Be aware there were logging operations close to where Black Mountain road (#661) branches off in 2021.
