"The Cameron Connection is a well-marked winter trail which culminates on Cameron Pass. The pass is named after General Robert A. Cameron, whose many exploits included the founding of Fort Collins. The Cameron Pass area usually has good winter snow depth. The trail is one of several in the Cameron Pass area. It winds through the trees parallel to Colorado Highway 14 for over 2 miles between the pass and the Zimmerman Lake parking area below."

"This is a short, surprisingly scenic trail through an old-growth forest of spruce and fir. It shares its trailhead with the Montgomery Pass Trail and is often overlooked. It offers excellent shelter from prevailing winds and, though it parallels the highway, is far enough away to be completely buffered from its sound or sight. This trail is available only in the late summer and early fall because it crosses many streams and wetlands that don’t dry out until the end of the summer hiking season."
