Red Dirt Road is primarily a graded dirt road that cuts through the Routt National Forest.  This road has a few dispersed campsites located along the southern end, but more are found on the spurs branching off to the west.  Since the road is made of soft dirt, be cautious of the sporadic deep ruts.  While the road is easily accessible in the summer by most vehicles, only skiers and snowmobiles are allowed during the Winter.  This road offers amazing views of the surrounding mountain ranges and is home to moose, bears, and other wildlife.  If you are looking for a place to air up or down, there are nice spots on the north and south end of the trail, but once you exit the Forest, there are very few areas you can pull off.
