Trail Overview

This beautifully scenic route takes you past Chimney Rock and up into the Uncompahgre Wilderness/National Forest. There are scattered primitive campgrounds all along the way. The first mile and a half (or so) of this trail is easy enough for 2WD (lower clearance vehicles) and would rate 1 or 2 on difficulty. The last half becomes more challenging with large rocky patches, runoff ruts, and mud holes. There is a river crossing with a small off-camber uphill climb on one side - river flow is dependent on the time of year. The trail dead-ends at the Wetterhorn Basin Trailhead. You will see incredible views of the surrounding mountains back there.
