Headquarters Road is a well-traveled dirt track in the Medicine Bow National Forest, colloquially referred to as "Happy Jack." Like most other trails in Happy Jack, this trail is suited for passenger vehicles, vans, and large camp setups such as RVs or fifth-wheels looking for an easy place to spend the night off-grid. This trail offers some of the most abundant dispersed camping in the entire area, even a campground located about halfway through the trail. Pair that with dramatic views of Point Crawford off to the west, and this may be some of the most sought-after camping for large camp setups or passenger cars without 4WD.
