Overview

Nestled in southern Colorado's picturesque Tarryall Mountains and South Park Valley, Puma Road is a year-round, moderate trail carved over a century ago by miners led by Samuel La Salle. This trail is a testament to human determination, cutting through the Puma Hills and offering a direct route into the South Park Valley. Its beauty peaks in the fall with vibrant foliage, and in winter, it becomes a solitary haven when nearby roads close. Whether the seasonal hues or the breathtaking landscapes stretch in all directions, this trail offers a staple Colorado off-roading experience that shouldn't be missed.
