Description

This section of the Tabeguache Trail begins from the junction with Transfer Road. Turn left (south) and continue along a gravel road. Another mile or so brings the wild and rugged Roubideau Canyon into view. Along this section there are a number of scenic vistas of the West Elk Mountains., Grand Mesa, and the Black Canyon of the Gunnison to the north, and northeast. Following the trail, continue to climb on Transfer Road until reaching powerlines. There is no water along this stretch.

The road was used in the early days to haul timber off the Uncompahgre Plateau. Logs were pulled by horse or mule to the road, then transferred into wagons, thus the name "Transfer Road."
