General Description

Quartz Campground lies west of the Sawatch Mountain Range in the southern part of the mineral belt that extends north to Leadville. It is a popular area for four-wheel driving. Most of the roads, that are used for recreation today, were created by mine owners over 100 years ago. Quartz Campground lies on Cumberland Pass Road, which is improved dirt and usually passable by two-wheel drive vehicles.

Directions from PITKIN: From Parlin on Highway 50 turn northeast on to State Road 76. Travel several miles, at least 10, to the mining village of Ohio. When you reach Ohio continue traveling east on State Road 76 for 6.5 more miles. At this point the road changes to dirt and is known as Cumberland Pass Road or Forest Road 765. Travel approximately 5 more miles on 765 to Quartz Campground.
