Remote in-and-out route with overlooks of Kings Canyon and Little Dolores Canyon. Add to that a trip through spectacular Colorado National Monument (fee area) and you are in for a full day of scenic views. Good dispersed camping along the
trail. Unlicensed vehicles can stage at the intersection just before the start. To explore more, continue east on DS Road to the Dolores Triangle in Utah.

Major route change to the entrance. As of 2023, the guidebook entrance is closed (private land dispute). The new entrance to access trail #23 Little Dolores Canyon will use Little River Canyon Rd. See map below. We encourage you to use the free Colorado Maps found at COTrex

When I showed up the gate was closed and there was a No trespassing sign posted. it said no trespassing, hunting, fishing trapping, or any other activity if I am mistaken, please update the trail information. if I am not, we need to update the trail info. I had a free trial of ONX offroad which brought me right to the trail. I say this to point out I was at the right spot. (i am not recommending the APP, I just happened to have it)

I drive a stock 2003 Toyota 4Runner and used 4WD quite a bit. I think in about another month it should be prime time. NOTE: Was initially a challenge to find the road, as it had no signs/mini-signs of any sort identifying it as the road start. But fortunately, the directions in the published book were very good.
