“Gorgeous San Juan site close to Telluride”
Reviewed Sep 04, 2017
If you head past Trout Lake on FR-626 you leave private land and enter Uncompahgre National Forest with legal dispersed camping. We picked a spot right next to the historic Trout Lake (railroad) Trestle with spectacular views of Mt. San Miguel. There are other sites further south, most of which are pull-offs along the road although a couple are tucked in. The road eventually loops back to CO-145 at Lizard Head Pass. From here, we drove to Mountain Village and road the free gondola into Telluride for easy, free parking. The North Trout Lake Road was once a railroad grade, so it's easy driving for any size rig.
