Stillwater Pass is an easy to access wilderness with lots of dispersed camping and trails. Off-highway-vehicles, bikers and hikers make use of the pass during the summer, with snowmobiling big in the winter.
Biking – Mountain bikes are permitted on most of the trails and roads.
Camping – There’s no shortage of free camping on CR 4. The closest spots to Hwy 34 lie only a few minutes back. The closest campgrounds can be found at the Arapaho Nat’l Rec Area.
Fishing – There’s not much water worth fishing in on most of Co Rd 4. Lost Lake lies about 15 miles down the road toward Hwy 125. The best option is to return to Hwy 34, and choose one of the massive lakes: Shadow Mountain Lake, Lake Granby or Grand Lake.
Hiking – Shared trails with bikes, horses and off-highway-vehicles. Many of the campsites have trails near them, as do all the parking areas.
OHV – ATV’s and dirt bikes are permitted on most of the trails and roads on Stillwater Pass.
Winter – Cross country skiing, snowshoeing and snowmobiling on trails.
Take County Road 4 south of town and Shadow Mountain Lake. It’s located just after the Grand Lake Tap House near Cutthroat Bay. Follow that a few miles back to national forest.
