One of the more pleasant 4wd roads I've been on. It is dry all the way to the upper TH. No mud. My stock Silverado 1500 4wd had no issues. The road immediately after the left turn at the mine might be the narrowest, steepest, and roughest. After that it's really not bad at all. There are two spots with deep ruts. It's not hard to find a good line through them. The main creek crossing was about ankle deep with no large rocks in it. Easy in and out.

Not really any camping options until you get to the TH.

I forgot to say, that my "no mud" comment only applies if it hasn't recently rained. I bet it wouldn't take much rain to make the deep dirt ruts a muddy and slippery mess.


WWC TH Camping

Hi Corunner! I'm going to hike San Luis next week and was wondering about camping at WWC TH. How many spots do you think are there for camping? Sounds like nothing in terms of camping between Creede and the WWC TH, is that right? Just trying to figure out my best camping options. Thanks for the helpful information on the road! Marcus
