Fun route for stock vehicles with a variety of challenges. Trail sometimes doesn’t open until late June or early July depending upon winter snowpack. Route skirts eastern border of Indian Peaks Wilderness and passes by historic Caribou Townsite (see Historical Highlights next page). Highest point of route reaches 10,200 feet with great mountain views including Eldora Ski Area. Explore several marked side roads. Camp only in numbered, designated sites along trail. Past abuses have threatened closure of this area. Stay on marked routes at all times. Report violators. Much of the route is easy but a few places are steep, narrow and rocky. One section after Caribou Creek is soft and rutted. When wet, it can be boggy and nearly impassable. High-clearance, stock SUVs should have no problem when the trail is dry. Long wheel-based vehicles should avoid the last 1.5 miles above the town of Eldora. This part of trail is very narrow with tight switchbacks. Caribou 4WD Route is great for ATVs but they are not allowed on County Roads 116 and 128. You can drive trail in either direction.
