This drive is high and remote with historic ruins, lush meadows, lakes, streams and wildlife. I recommend going in summer and fall. From S.R. 150 at East Fork and Bear River campgrounds, take road 058 east toward Black’s Fork River [N40°54.892' W110°49.635'], named in the 1820s for Arthur Black of the Ashley Fur Company. For 11 miles North Slope Road (058) is exceptionally good as it takes you through forest toward 10,235-foot Elizabeth Pass, passing fantastic vistas of canyons, cliffs and peaks salted with snowfields. At mile 14 is an old log building, the remains of one of the area’s early 20th-century logging camps where “tiehackers” cut railroad ties.
