Highlight: Black Dumps
Black Dumps Road, FS Road 186, is located within the San Isabel National Forest approximately ten miles east of Johnson Village. This area of the National Forest, commonly referred to as “Fourmile”, contains hundreds of roads and spurs which provide a broad spectrum of outdoor recreational opportunities. Black Dumps Road is noted for its high buttes, boulder-strewn meadows, and Aspen forest. It is popular among OHV users, mountain bikers, hikers, and equestrians. The northern portion of Black Dumps is a maintained dirt road suitable for virtually all motorized vehicles (it is not uncommon to see ordinary passenger sedans, minivans, and large RVs). The southern segment, however, is a genuine 4WD road with rocks, ruts, and seasonal mud. Its remoteness, the variety of outdoor activities it invites, and rugged two-track roads are the greatest attractions to Black Dumps Road.
