Trail Overview

Pass through the Collegiate Peaks Wilderness area on this narrow cut of forest land. The climb circles a beautiful valley and opens up to panoramic views at the top. Fun trail for ATVs and UTVs. Stay on the route and do not enter the wilderness area.


Difficult. Moderately steep with embedded rock. Numerous crossings of Tellurium Creek are shallow except during periods of heavy runoff. Loop portion of trail has a couple of very steep rocky sections. The optional western loop is only for ATVs. Very steep and tippy in spots with loose talus and tight switchbacks.

Access Description

From Taylor Park Trading Post, head north 13.5 miles on Taylor River Road to well-marked Tellurium Creek Road 584 on right.
