Description

This section of the Tabeguache Trail follows the Dominguez Trail - an old stock driveway. The two-track route begins at the Divide Rd./Dominguez Trail intersection and then descends from the crest of the of the Uncompahgre Plateau into the head waters of Dominguez Creek, a scenic drainage known for its red rock cliffs. Views of the La Sal Mountains in Utah, the Grand Mesa and Bookcliffs are part of this section's scenic splendor.

At mile 3.9, the initial descent reaches Dominguez Creek. Continue descending until the a creek crossing at mile 5.1. The two-track winds across rolling meadows for a couple of miles and then climbs and turns left at mile 7.3. Look for great views to the southwest of the La Sal Mountains. in Utah, and views of the Bookcliffs to the north.

At mile 10.5, pass Winter Camp Rd and continue straight and to begin descending again. At mile 12.2, cross the USFS/BLM shared boundary and continue straight. Cross the creek again to complete this section.

The Uncompahgre Plateau was inhabited by the Ute Indians prior to their removal in 1881. The upper Dominguez Creek area was a favorite of theirs. Cattle ranching was and continues to be a large part of the land use mix.
