Just North of Mancos, Co. head up towards Transfer Park Campground on County Road 42. Continue past campground, and veer right at the fork towards Jersey Jim Fire Tower. Take Forest Road 350 on right to site.

This site has fantastic views of Cortez, Sleeping Ute Mountain, the flat top of Mesa Verde, and on clear days you can see Shiprock in New Mexico.
Good solar exposure for charging your batteries.
Warning, this site is about 10K feet.
The road is close by and this area is popular for ATVs. I’ll take the traffic for this view.
