Trail Information

Highlights

Camaan Springs Road is located off Pingree Park Road in the Roosevelt National Forest. Parts of the trail are located in the High Park Fire burn area, which was a huge, naturally caused (lightning) fire in 2012 that burned over 87,000 acres. The burn areas are very visible from the trail, as there are massive swaths of completely charred land. This trail is great for year-round wheeling and camping if you are feeling the itch to get out, or if you are new to off-roading and want to start getting comfortable behind the wheel, as the trailhead is only about an hour from the base of Poudre Canyon. While driving along the trail, you can't help but gaze at the absolutely stunning scenic vistas; mountains with snowy peaks that touch the outskirts of the beautiful Rocky Mountain National Park.

This is mostly a one-lane dirt road trail but very easy to move to the shoulder for any oncoming traffic. Completely dry right now but could be muddy in the spring. Some nice views of the Comanche Peak range near the end of the trail.

A friend checked this trail over the weekend and this is what he saw. This is just after WP 2. Make sure you have the right recovery gear if you are going out in early conditions! Apologies for the small photos but apparently this guy needed recovery.

It is still early in the spring for trails along the the Pingree Park Road. Camaan Springs Road was in great shape and free of snow. There were a few areas water and mud on the trail, but easily passable without difficulty. The nearby Quigley Mountain to the south, still has snow visible. The camping season for this area has begun as we saw several camps established.
