One could consider this the origin of the Grand Canyon. Long Draw Road leads to where the Colorado River begins its magnificent 1450-mile-long journey through the southwest United States and Mexico. Long Draw Road lies along the northern edge of the Rocky Mountain National Park at the continental divide in northcentral Colorado. Beautiful and rugged mountain views are abundant as you travel near three wilderness areas, Comanche Peak, Never Summer, and Neota Wilderness. At the road’s end, there is plenty of room to park and then hike about one-half mile to the headwaters of the Colorado River and a little further to the ghost mining town of Lulu City. Make sure you have your camera along for this adventure.
