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 US-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 CO-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.
