RE: Sedona to Moab and all points in between

Ok everyone, make us a "List" of things to see and places to stop. Traveling from Sedona AZ eventually arriving in to Moab for Jeep Week. We've been to Monument Valley and Arches National park, but need suggestions for other points in-between. All suggestions are appreciated in advance. Thanks to you all. Something like THIS might be Fun. Sedona to HorseShoe bend then maybe a slot canyon or two before Page/Lake Powell - then Possibly Zion if you are ready for the Crowds - Angels Landing and the Narrows are always calling - Bryce is worth the effort - With Escalante and Kodachrome as a stop - then RT 12 and and the Hog Back before Capital Reef - I highly recommend the drive across the Narrow part of Lake Powell along with a drive in the Jeep on some of the shores - Now Catch Natural Bridge before heading on up to Moab and all the fun, don't miss the drive along RT 128. One more link that will help with giving you some Local Knowledge of the town. 4runners Guide to Moab!. Hope this was what you were after. Best of Luck,

RE: Driving through D.C.

We'll be pulling a 19' Coleman 17FQ through D.C. to drop off our daughters at a hotel where they'll be attending a wedding for a weekend. My wife and I will continue on out of D.C. for a few hours to camp for the weekend, before returning to pick them up and head back home to Ohio. We don't plan on any layover in D.C., just "stop, and get out/in...quickly!" Have any of you pulled a camper through D.C., or am I just asking for trouble, and should I make alternative plans/routes? Any tips or suggestions would be greatly appreciated! Thanks! First - it just depends on your comfort level - I have Driven My Coach and many others in DC - But I live here and it is really not an Issue. Give us more info and Maybe we can be more specific - for just smarts and ease of driving I'd select the CG and leave the trailer before going into Town - then when you are ready to leave and are hooked up, to pick the girls up, it is not totally unfamiliar to you. It's just a city with some tight streets ......so being slightly familiar will help. Best of Luck,

RE: Grand Lake, CO from the west

Black Canyon to Grand Lake: The route with the easiest grades would be US 50 east to Grand Junction, then catch I-70 and head east to CO 131 at Walcott. North on CO 131 to just over the Colorado River at State Bridge and then head east on the Trough Road (CR 1) which parallels the Colorado River for part of its length. The Trough Road is a well maintained graded road that they put magchloride on to keep it smooth and the dust down. This joins CO 9 just south of Kremmling. From there it's east on US 40 etc. If it's dry weather, the Trough Road is the route we (and other locals) take to Grand Lake from Glenwood Springs. If it's rainy, magchloride makes the road kind of slippery so we head north to Toponas and take CO 134 east over Gore Pass to US 40, then take a right to Granby, etc. Gore Pass is just over 9500' so a pretty easy pass. For a little more scenic variation on this route, take CO 92 out of Delta to CO 133 and over McClure Pass and on through Carbondale. Then north on CO 82 to Glenwood Springs, I-70, etc. The drive along the Crystal River is one of the most amazingly scenic routes in this state esp. up by Marble and Redstone. Leaving Grand Lake: I think the hardest thing about going over Trail Ridge Road is dealing with all the traffic. Lots of people sightseeing = slow going. Heading south over Berthoud Pass means heading into Denver from Empire on a very busy stretch of I-70. Not a difficult drive but for the traffic. CO 14 over Cameron Pass and down the Poudre is indeed scenic but can also be quite busy esp. on weekends. If you don't mind the extra time, the route up CO 125/127 to WY 230 is an excellent option. Ken has been the on line authority for almost 20 years, on Colorado - Between Ken and Thom you are getting what, IMHO is the Best Local advice on All Things Colorado. Almost 15 years ago I posted a Picture of a View that I could not remember it's location - Ken ID'd it and then gave me the History.... I've never forgotten that, so Yes Ken Knows Colorado well!

RE: St George, UT to Cannonville, UT (Bryce Canyon Trip)

I would, and have, taken the road (UT-9) from Zion and straight through the tunnel to Carmel, then north on 89 to 12. That saves a lot of time and only costs $15 for the rangers at Zion to stop the traffic through the tunnels so only traffic going your direction is in the tunnel and you have the whole road to ride the centerline. May 2018 when we drove the tunnel there was no longer the $15.00 fee. The traffic was alternating one way for everyone. A note: Zion parking lots are FULL by 10:00 AM. You will need to park in the town and take the bus into the park. ^^^^^^^^^^ Good advice. ^^^^^^^^^^

RE: St George, UT to Cannonville, UT (Bryce Canyon Trip)

Okay, back in October last year we started planning this trip, and I asked about getting from the Grand Canyon, South Rim to Sedona.(Here was my original question back in 10/2019) I got great feedback on that thread, and I thank profusely all that contributed. Now, time has passed, and we've been planning and preparing, and we leave in about 10 days! Wohoo! Plans, however, have changed, due to weather, poor timing on our part, and whatever, so here I am coming back to the well again. We've dropped the whole Grand Canyon stop until next trip. This trip we are heading to St George, UT to spend time at Zion NP and that area. From there we are heading for two long stopovers up at Bryce Canyon. The first stop is at Bryce Valley KOA at Cannonville, just East of the park. The second is at Ruby's, up in Bryce Canyon City at the North end of the park. We are leaving St George on April 8th. Which route is best for the signature rig, or for any rig for that matter? I see a couple of obvious options, but don't know anything about them. Route A) North on I-15 to Hiway 20, then East to Hiway 89 at Bear Valley Junction. Going South from there on Hiway 89 to Hiway 12 East would take us right past Bryce (turnoff for Bryce Canyon City), and down to Cannonville. This looks like the most "major road" route of the two, but is a bit farther around. Route B) North on I-15 to Cedar City, and then head East on Hiway 14, picking up Hiway 89 North at Long Valley Junction. Heading North from there on Hiway 89 intersects Route A above when we hit Hiway 12 to go East, still taking us right past Bryce (turnoff for Bryce Canyon City) and then to Cannonville. This route seems a bit more direct, but over less major roads. In fact, I suspect I might be a bit nuts to consider this one, but hey, I already admitted I don't know the area at all, so what the heck. I'm game to hear that and be advised if it be the case. Did I miss a more obvious and direct option? What do you think of these options in mid-to-late April? Thanks in advance! ReallyBigMax Some Reading for you on the Area. More on the area with Two Gypsies giving good insight:) Don't forget Kolob part of Zion National Park - often Missed but Beautiful! IMHO Twogypsies will be your best advisor - Best of Luck with the Routes,

RE: Grand Lake, CO from the west

The way I see it, there are three options heading out: Trail Ridge up and over through Rocky (my wife is not keen on that), Highway 40 via Berthoud Pass (not sure I'M keen on that) south to I-70, or 125/127 north up to Laramie, WY (I don't know this route at all). Primarily thinking grades and pulls. There is another option to these 3. Take CO 125 north to Walden then take CO 14 east up and over Cameron Pass and down the Poudre Canyon. Beautiful drive, Cameron is not overly difficult. A lot shorter than going up and over to Laramie. If your wife is not keen on Trail Ridge, she will definitely not enjoy the 11 or so miles that you're above timberline with no guardrails and drop offs. US 40 over Berthoud Pass really is not difficult, there are multiple lanes in both directions, no shelf roadway, but it IS a high pass and a goodly incline and decline. Going up CO 125, there's Willow Creek Pass, barely noticeable as passes go. Flat/rolling terrain to Walden and then north to where 127 splits off. There's a goodly climb on CO/WY 127 but it's not difficult. There's also a drop down to Woods Landing WY, just keep an eye on speed going down. Rolling terrain coming out of Woods Landing in to Laramie. ^^^^^^^^^^ Thom Knows Colorado! Good advice! ^^^^^^^^^^ We will be in Grand Lake, CO/west side of RMNP this summer, coming from Black Canyon of the Gunnison NP. What is the easiest way in to Grand Lake? We're towing a 25' travel trailer that will make the truck work as we wind through Colorado. I'm no stranger to mountain driving, and have come in to Grand Lake via Winter Park and Berthoud Pass (without towing) numerous times. ..................................... A little background, a couple years ago we took our rig from Mueller State Park west to Durango and the San Juans via Wolf Creek Pass, so I'm comfortable towing in the mountains. I just don't know what that 125/127 route is like. Thanks! Only thing I might add is the drive up to Grand Lake from Black Canyon would be to get to Silverthorne and then take RT 9 to Kremmling then on to Grand lake - takes Berthoud out of the Picture and other than Monarch Pass on RT 50 is really, as far as passes go not that noteworthy. JMHO :) If you were to go North on RT 125 as the exit plan then Snowy Range might rate a Drive through. - That would work, right Thom? MAP - Grand Lake to Snowy Range to Laramie. Just a thought,

RE: Quiet boondocking Moab + South Grand Canyon late march

Quiet campsites (boondocking) Moab/South Grand Canyon area late march Hi all We will be in a 4x4 pop-up truck camper, (so easy to off road) and I'm looking to find scenic quiet safe boondocking late march. Specifically just 2 areas - (sadly short on time and limited to only these 2 areas) just a tiny bit north or just south of Moab, UT (so easy dinner in Moab that night) and also at, or very close to the South rim of Grand Canyon. Yes of course we'll watch for road closures, and watch the weather.... and I believe that roads may close that make it impossible to get to the South rim of the Grand Canyon. We are fully self contained, and prefer scenic and quiet boondocking. Thanks for any suggestions! :-) Good source of info Here Should have no issue on the South Rim - Come in on RT 64 from the east - Might catch Monument Valley and Goosenecks on the way south. Best of Luck,

RE: Mother Cabrini Shrine, Golden, CO

Has anyone visited the Mother Cabrini Shrine? There is a gate near the top of the hill before the Stone House with a bar over the road. Does anyone know the clearance under that bar? Not sure we can get under it with an RV. Thanks for anyone that has the answer! Look's fine as far as getting under - Just drove up on line - just call to be sure - think you might also be sure you can make the switch backs. Best of Luck,

RE: Two Questions in Colorado

I like "best and safest" and also "least stressful and most relaxing." Do you have a time crunch? I would double back to Fort Collins and enjoy the drive up 14. However, Thom definitely is the authority here. One aspect of doubling back from RFL to US 287, then south to CO14, is being able to fuel up with gas/diesel at a competitive price at Teds Place, which is the intersection of CO14/US287. About 90 miles from there to Walden, with peace of mind that fuel will not be an issue. ^^^^^^^^^^^ Thom, Really Knows Colorado ^^^^^^^^^^

RE: Two Questions in Colorado

We are going to be staying at Dowdy Lake Campground at Red Feather Lakes, CO in August. When we leave we are going west on Hwy 14. Does anyone know of a dump station going west before we reach Walden? Also, we are towing a 30’ Arctic Fox fifth wheel camper. Map shows quickest way is to take the 12.5 mile gravel road which is W CR 74e (Manhattan Rd.) which becomes N CR 69 and comes out at Rustic, CO on Hwy 14 where we go west. Forest Service mentioned some “steep” places and some “switchbacks”. Has anyone towed this road? Would you recommend doing this? Otherwise we will have to go back towards Ft. Collins and go south and get on Hwy 14 west—take twice as long, but we can do whatever is best/safest. THANKS There is only 1 place between Rustic and Walden (about 60 miles) to dump and that is the Colorado State Forest SP facility outside of Gould. It's right off CO 14 at CR 41, by the North Park Campground and Never Summer Nordic yurts. Make a right and bear left for the entrance to the SP, just past the entry make a left heading toward the shops and there's a loop for the dump. It doesn't have water there though. CR74E is the Red Feather Lakes Road. You can go west from Dowdy Lake to the intersection with the Manhattan Road (CR69), or you can double back on the RFL Rd and pick up CR68C, AKA the Boy Scout Ranch Road. Of the 2, I prefer CR68C. These 2 roads intersect and become CR69 to Rustic. This is where it gets interesting. It is steep, it is very narrow and it's 2 directions, so you are likely to encounter traffic heading uphill as you are going downhill. There are no pull offs. There are a couple of very tight turns and if you commit to them, you are committed. There is no backing up; the uphill traffic would need to back up for you. This is a short segment however. But it is definitely a challenge. If you are comfortable with steep and narrow and willing to commit once you are approaching the curves, it's doable. If it were me, I would put flashers on, honk my horn a lot because some of the curves are blind, and hope for minimal traffic. This way does save you time; stop at Rustic Resort or Archers Resort and take some deep breaths :E You don't have to double back to US 287 on the RFL Rd and go south to CO 14. From Dowdy Lake, you can continue past the Manhattan Rd on CR 86/the Deadman Road (named for a mountain, not the condition of the road!) It is an all season road like all the others in that area, and there are a lot of curves. But it is doable and can be scenic as well. You'll be dropping down into the Laramie River Valley and as you are nearly down, you'll intersect with CR 80C/the Sand Creek Pass Road. Make a left on CR80C, and that will take you to CR103/the Laramie River Road. Make a left and stay on the Laramie River Road all the way to CO 14. Yes, it's all dirt, and there are some rough spots, but there's also some scenic portions. THIS is wild Colorado. This is my stomping grounds. Been going to this area since the early 80s when I moved to Colorado. THIS is what Colorado is all about. A fuel caution. Fill up with gas/diesel in Red Feather Lakes. Full tank. There's a very hard to get to pump at Rustic Resort and also one at Archers Resort, but IIRC, there's no diesel at either. From Red Feather to Walden, either way you go, there's no diesel. There's 2 stations in Walden that have gas/diesel. ^^^^^^^^^^ Thom Knows Colorado - Good Info ^^^^^^^^^^^ Would love to hear more about this area - as it has escaped me so Far.

RE: Ridgway State Park to Leadville

What is the best way to go to Leadville/Buena Vista area from Ridgway State Park? We have a large dually pickup and will be towing a 34-ft fifth wheel. This is planned for July 2020. We prefer ease of towing, and would like to keep steep mountain passes, etc to a minimum. Thanks for any information you can give us. Big :) here. You are in the Heart of the Rockies - As will usually be the case any trip from Here to There will likely involve a Mountain or Two! Suggested Route - with one pass - First time over this I just thought I had gone over a Mountain "Not a Pass" - Note here I love Driving in the Mountains. Might be fun to Stop at Monarch Mountain Ski Resort to rest and stretch your legs - One more note - Wal*Mart is in Gunnison to Resupply - and http://quincystavern.com/ - is worth the stop for dinner. Hope this helps, as the Alternative is Vail Pass and that's Big. Best of Luck, edit Another Post to Read on the Area.

RE: I-70 Colorado in April

SO we're planning a trip to Moab, UT the end of April coming from the east. I'm hearing that it's not unusual to get snow at that time of year and I-70 may be closed then. Any comments? Everyone is likely relating their experiences to you - so While I do not live in Colorado I've got Four Granddaughters there - so we are there often to say the least - Having also spent two Winters in Golden I have traveled often in both the RV and the Car to and From Vail/Breck/Steamboat/Moab - so I can relate to your concern. I'll be flying out tomorrow for a week so I'll check first hand. Watch the Weather - Period! It can and will often change more than once a day, Look at CDOT - https://www.cotrip.org/map.htm#/default?StreamingCameraId=10269 - click on any camera to see the Currant conditions - as they are all Different. Big Deal is Eisenhower Tunnel and Vail Pass - then usually good to Glenwood Springs - and try to Remember to Exit on Utah Exit 214 off I-70 to Moab - Following the Colorado River Just Beautiful and a great Welcome to Moab Drive:) 4runnerguy's Link here - https://www.rv.net/forum/index.cfm/fuseaction/thread/tid/29448394.cfm - will help with Moab, April is busy so might be smart to check for Reservations. Link to West Side Truck Ramp post #13 Pictures don't lie - Thousands of Skiers flock to those Hills when it snows - so Check CDOT info and just be prepared to wait a day if needed, Love it in those Rocks in April. Weekends are not a good time as Traffic can Be Horrendous - Lot's of Skiers! - IMHO Traffic is as big a concern as Weather. Hope this helps,

dont know how heavy. Its a Grand Design Solitude 310 (2019) https://www.granddesignrv.com/showroom/2020/fifth-wheel/solitude/floorplans/310GK#specs Might be a good Idea to get an Accurate Measurement on the Height of the Trailer on your Vehicle - when empty and when full.

RE: ROUTE SUGGESTIONS

We have been out west a zillion times and are going to WYS for 7 days there let alone many many many stops. We have a 36 ft 5th wheel that is 13.5 tall so I was concerned about the bridges and tunnels on what ever roads. We live in Ft Ld and will be going to: Memphis,Eureka Spr, Dodge, Co Spr, YS,Bryce-Zion, Lake Powell, Grand Canyon, then down to a few stops in TX then to San Antonio, Nashville to name some stops. Like I said, many we have been to before but some want to visit again. Looking at going from Co Spr to 287 or 191 to get to Yellowstone. If we go on 191 we can miss the traffic is S YS and go directly to WYS where we will camp 15 min N oF WYS. We have 7 days there, so we will do the S end with just the truck. Sorry to have missed your Mission. - Couple things that would have helped in getting a more legitimate/helpful reply - The fact that the rig is 13.5' tall, would have helped - Never seen one that tall but what would I know without some factual info like, type of 5th wheel.:h Second your join date and the fact that you have only 3-4 posts would indicate you Just Might be a Rookie.:S While I have not yet been out West a Zillion times, yet, I go at least a couple times a year and have a couple hundred thousand miles out there, ..... I always look to make the Drive as good as the Destination - .....with Yellowstone being the destination, that requires a pretty good Drive.:R So, Sorry, to have not been of any help - Might work on your signature so we would have an idea as to the type of RV'er you are ..........not that you just joined and didn't know to fill out the Signature part of the registration.;) Time of year would also help, as you are well aware of the Heat in the Summer of Utah - so it is a much more friendly place in the Shoulder seasons..........But I'm sure you have that factored into your Zillion and 1st trip.

RE: ROUTE SUGGESTIONS

Going to W.Yellowstone from Colorado Springs. Looks like going from Co Springs to Lander to W.Yellowstone is the least miles. It is not interstate, so I am wondering about if any bridges or any other issues. Some say to go Co Spr to Rock Springs to Idaho Falls to W.Yellowstone. Hate to add another 100 miles because we have about 8,000 during our across the US trip. If I understand the Question you are out on a Tour of the USA - to SEE the Sites and you are going from Colorado to West Yellowstone. May I be so bold to offer a much more Beautiful drive that will allow you to see more of the Rockies that you may Enjoy? ImHO if you are traveling around the USA and the number of Miles you are driving is the Leading Concern you may need to really Think about your Mission! You are in the Middle of Colorado, which IMHO is almost Heaven. Sorry if this is not a direct answer to your question as it just ........well just not right to not endeavor to try to see more not less as you drive from destination to destination. My simple/easy/recommended/short drive would be Colorado Springs to Buena Vista/Collegiates/Independence Pass/Twin Lakes/Leadville/Arkansas River/Browns Canyon to Dino National Monument - catching Camp Hale/Red Cliff/Minturn/Aspen/Maroon Bells/Glenwood Springs/Rifle State Park/ as you drive along the way then Flaming Gorge to Alpine to Jackson to the Tetons up through Yellowstone and out to West Yellowstone. Map of the general Route Just a beautiful Drive that has a little to see along the way :) If you insist on your Lander Route you need to be aware of I-25 traffic which can in and of itself be just Gruelling on all in the vehicle - You will pass the opportunity to see RT 6 drive/Golden/Boulder/Peak to Peak drive/RMNP/RT 34 0r 36/Snowy Range/Wind River Canyon/Cody Chief Joseph Highway Beartooth.............the list goes on. To simply answer your question about most routes in the West - Bridges when encountered usually work - Restricted Roads are marked (Independence Pass) - Interstates are filled with Trucks and generally pretty bumpy - Side roads are Better and there is more to see and do than you can possible accomplish id a lifetime much less in one Trip. Hope this helps,

RE: Wolf Creek Pass vs. Coal Bank & Molas Passes

How does Wolf Creek Pass from South Fork to Durango compare to Coal Bank & Molas Passes from Durango to Silverton, CO? US 160 and Wolf Creek Pass tops out at ~10800 feet and is 3- and 4-lane roadway. It's nowhere near as bad as legend has it, or it was in the past. Yes, it's a steep pass on the west side, but it's not difficult and there are runaway truck ramps. 2 climb lanes on the eastbound side west of the summit, 2 lanes going down. 2 climb lanes westbound on the east side of the summit, 1 and 2 lanes going down. No shelf road to speak of, IIRC, there are guardrails all the way, and there are some cool pull offs for those photo ops. US 550, Coal Bank Pass (~10600 feet) and Molas Pass (~10900 feet), is 2 lane roadway all the way to Silerton. IMO, Coal Bank is "meh", is barely noticeable as Colorado Passes go. Molas has a nice overlook parking area, and there's an amazing campground north of the pass (seasonal). Neither are as daunting as their 3rd companion...Red Mountain Pass. That pass itself is not so bad, it's the portion from the summit north to Ouray that is the stuff of legends and much discussion on this and other message boards. Tight switchbacks, avalanche shoots and shelf road with no guardrails and steep drop offs. Yes, truckers and buses do it all the time...and they are professional drivers, accustomed to it. Experienced drivers can handle it. ^^^^^^^^^^ I Agree Great Summary ^^^^^^^^^^

RE: Best Route through the Smokies

Looking for advice going from Gatlinburg to Ashville NC. Anyone made that trip and know of the best road? Is 441 across the Smokies any good for a Diesel Pusher with Toad? Planning for the summer-fall of 2020. Thanks for any advice. Arnold, Happy travels. As a personal view driving in the Smokies will Test even the Best drivers - PERIOD. Straight is not in the description of anything. Can you, sure, either one but IMHO I-40 is just Crazy - the speed limit for trucks is set to the slowest truck driving as they are - for the most part - Restricted to the right lane, and most are doing well over 65 on a road designed for a Sports Car, if you dare to get into the Left lane you will be run over by the local traffic doing 75+. I remember thinking that while I love a Challenge and I love to Drive this would not be Fun in the RV - Luckily I was in Really Nice New Truck (Brothers) and it was still a drivers drive. Guess what I'm trying to say is that it is like Driving the Washington Beltway - At Rush Hour - with two lanes closed - Jersey walls on both sides - 11' lanes - at 75+ MPH. So while RT 441 may be a challenge it will allow you to get out of the way and take the drive at a much more leisurely pace. JMHO,

RE: Casper wy to yellowsrone

I will be going to Yellowstone NP rom Casper WY in the middle of sept this year. Is 20/26 to 26 into Yellowstone the best option. I have a f250 6.2 gas pulling a 9000 lb TT. Thanks. Best? - I have done both and you will have no issue either way look at this MAP and see if Shoshoni to Thermopolis to Cody might work for you. The Wind River Canyon has always been of particular interest to me - the River runs North and the road rises as you go north giving the unusual feeling that the River is actually Running Uphill. Great CG right on the River just out of Shoshoni - Thermopolis has the Hot Springs - Cody the Buffalo Bill Museum along with a day Drive on Chief Joseph and the Beartooth if you were inclined. No wrong choices as every road needs to be driven to really see the Area in and Around YNP. One last note - September and the Aspen in Colorado and the West are just amazing, if I were you I'd try to catch a little of Colorado to see some of it - the last week of September - Colorado Aspen -Beautiful!

RE: Trip West

Thanks and based on everyone’s feedback we might make adjustments in our time frame to get the biggest bang for our trip. If I were you and had your timeline I'd LOOK Hard at this Post. IMHO the Aspen in Colorado are just Amazing. Buena Vista and the Collegiates are filled with drives and Hikes. Cottonwood Pass - Independence Pass - Salida - Twin Lakes - Crested Butte......on and on. If you get Really Luck you might just Catch a little Snow when you are at the top of the Pass - Really Lucky - One year we drove over to Aspen to Hike the Bells for a Couple days - Aspen were only a little Yellow - 4 days Latter on the return Drive a Sea of Gold and SNOW when we reached the Pass - UNBELIEVABLY BEAUTIFUL! - When we got into Buena Vista to head into the Collegiates and Cottonwood Pass it was almost 70 - OMG moments - that trip is one of My Best every in Colorado. (note here RT 82 is a restricted size road so be aware - RT 82 restrictions If we are on the right path we can help more, all you need to do is be specific on what you need - I'm more of a where to Go Guy - not a where to Stay Guy, so others may suggest CG's Hope this helps,
