Located in the mountains of Uncompahgre National Forest near Ouray, Sydney Basin is yet another astonishing high alpine basin that provides epic views of some of the most pristine mountains of the San Juans. This 4wd road is slightly less traveled, especially by the rental Jeeps as it is not the easiest to find, and will test your resolve with shelf roads. Great high alpine camping can be found along this route. Combine this trail with Governor Basin to extend your day of breathtaking mountain views.
