Alta Ghost Town Trail

Alta Ghost Town Trail Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"FR 632, an unpaved road from Colorado 145 to the township of Alta, is well maintained and in good conditions can be traveled easily by passenger cars. On the western side of Colorado 145 at the Ophir Pass turnoff is the road to the township of Ames, where the electricity for Alta was generated.

Special Attractions: Alta, a well-preserved ghost town; The picturesque Alta Lakes. High-clearance vehicles are preferred, but not necessary. This trail is dirt roads, but may have rocks, grades, water crossings, or ruts that make clearance a concern in a normal passenger vehicle. The trail is fairly wide, so that passing is possible at almost any point along the trail. Mud is not a concern under normal weather conditions."

Nice area to check out. Very easy trail to drive, and even if you dont have high clearance you can walk up this road as well. Just another part of history up there.
