County Road 5 is an easy, mostly graded dirt trail with great views of the Buffalo Peaks Wilderness and San Isabel National Forest. The road provides easy access to a few trail systems between Fairplay and Leadville, CO, and takes you directly to the Weston Pass TH. About halfway down this trail, a few small areas have small ruts and rocks protruding, but these are easy to drive over. While traveling on this road, you may see elk, black bears, moose, and other wildlife that call this area home. A handful of free dispersed camping sites along this trail are large enough for campers and larger groups. As you travel deeper into the mountain, the campsites get smaller and more remote, but dispersed camping is abundant in the surrounding area.
