Fun, challenging back way to get to the dunes.

A fun shortcut if you happen to be fishing at Hohnholz Lakes or staying in the Red Feather Lakes area, or just want to avoid the long paved drive to Walden. Although much of the route is easy, the final descent to the dunes qualifies this route as a true 4-wheeldrive adventure. Laramie River Road is an exceptionally scenic drive through classic Colorado ranching country. No seasonal closures are shown on MVUM.


Trail Ratings Defined

Most of this route is easy, but F.S. 200 can become a quagmire when wet. The final 3-mile descent to the dunes is narrow, rocky and rough in places. Sandy roads at the bottom near the creek are prone to washouts and difficult conditions are possible here. Carry a tree saw as fallen trees may block the trail.
