Radio Tower Trail goes to the top of a small dome just north of Mount Princeton. The road is used as an access for the communication equipment at the top and is an easy drive. There are great views of the Arkansas River Valley at the end, and the trail has a few campsites along the way. A dead-end camping spur route about 1/3 into the trail offers some dispersed sites. And the camping photo accompanying this write-up is from about 1/2 into the trail. A parking lot at the last switchback has a hiking trail, which cuts uphill to meet the Colorado Trail. Overall, use on this road is low, and there is plenty of room to pass other vehicles.
