South Trail is a 2.5-mile, rough dirt trail that ascends about 500 feet through the trees of Taylor Park in the Gunnison National Forest. Although the trail doesn't provide great views of the surrounding area, it offers solitude for those looking to briefly escape the more popular and busy trails in Taylor Park.

Years ago, this trail went much further and connected to a whole network of other trails. Today, this trail is a victim of partial trail closure, as evidenced by the US Forest Service barrier blocking the road's southern end.

There is a single wide-open camping spot at the beginning of the trail, although it's not ideal due to its proximity to a moderately trafficked, dusty dirt road.

Any vehicle with a bit of clearance could easily traverse South Trail.
