Satellite and Topo Map




General Description

This road provides ample camping or picnicking spots. This four-wheel drive road is very rough and is better suited for jeeps and other short wheel base vehicles. It is a nice road for winter activities.

Winter Activities:

Snowmobiling - This trail follows Burro Creek Road (Forest Development Road 328) up to the Fitton Guard Station and Blowout Pass and returns along the same route.

There are many options in this country. One option would be a long loop trip from the Burro Creek Road, past the Fitton Guard Station and then follow Road 329 west to Route 330 north to the starting point.


Cross-Country Skiing - The trail travels up Burro Creek to Blowout Pass, west along the ridgetop trail for 1.5 miles where it turns north and returns to Fitton. There are other loop possibilities in this area by using unplowed Forest Roads like 329 and 330.

For a one day trip, travel on the trail to Fitton Guard Station and return by the same route. Contact the Divide Ranger Station for more information.

The first 1.5 miles (2.5 km) of the trail along the Burro Creek Road is on private land. Please use courtesy in this area, as well as on National Forest land. Because the first several miles of the trail are at a relatively low elevation, you may encounter areas of sparse snow cover at the beginning of the season.
