Trail Information

Highlights

Cutting through the heart of the East Troublesome Fire, Stillwater Pass is an easily accessible route that connects Grand Lake to Highway 125. This road is extremely popular for dispersed camping and OHV riding as it treks northwest between Gravel Mountain and Porphyry Peaks, rewarding users with astonishing views of Lake Granby. The entire drive will leave you gazing upon a sea of wildflowers and young aspen trees within the 193,000 acres of charred pine forest

Nice road with several offshoots to explore. Ample camping opportunities. I usually don't like driving through burned areas but glad I did. The wildflowers are in fact outstanding this year

Nice road with great views! Lots of dispersed camping but on weekends it can be busy. Lots of trails to hit off this road. A Subaru would be fine on this road. The area was burned a couple of years ago , however the wildflowers were crazy awesome this summer !

The western side of Stillwater is closed again due to mudslides related to the East Troublesome Fire.

Stillwater has finally opened back up after the fire. Not all roads in the area are back open, so be sure to check the closure order. https://www.fs.usda.gov/detail/arp/news-events/?cid=FSEPRD930052&fbclid=IwAR31lE-KTMonx2qxlTwtz7r1zelsg51bOcy76TPQWzVmnCZ7-ugC2EOEUCs

This trail is super easy. I saw passenger vehicles going over the pass. It is a long and pleasant drive. Lot of burn scars.
