Description

This section of the Tabeguache Trail is very straight forward, following the Divide Road. It is a main backcountry road so there can be a fair amount of traffic, especially during fall-colors season. Although it's graveled and lacks any technical interest, it makes up for this with outstanding scenery. Enjoy views of the Wilson Peaks, Dolores Peaks, Lone Cone, Paradox Valley and Utah's La Sal Mountains.

The Divide Road follows the crest of the Uncompahgre Plateau, generally maintaining a steady elevation with an overall loss of approximately 500 ft over the course of this section.

The entire Tabeguache Trail with the exception of a few miles near Grand Junction, CO can be found on the Trails Illustrated/NatGeo maps #146 and #147. A trail log of this route, as with all the Tabeguache Trail sections, can be found on the BLM Uncompahgre Field Office website.
