Overview

The US Forest along the Colorado-Wyoming border has a rich history of logging and mining dating back more than a century. Evidence of these activities are still visible today along Village Belle Road. Although Village Belle Road ends near the US Continental Divide, visitors will remain in the densely treed forest without realizing they are near this significant geographical spot. An existing mine shaft, the Village Belle Mine, is located to the south approximately .5 miles past the trail's end waypoint. The mine is located along Medicine Bow Road and easily accessible. If a quiet off-road experience is what you're looking for, Village Belle Road can meet your expectations. This area of the forest is far enough away from the city hustle and bustle that it does not see many people and can be ideal for a quiet afternoon drive or a relaxing weekend camping get-away.
