This easily accessed, graded dirt road provides beautiful scenery and a destination at a log lodge built in the 1930's. Originally built as a shelter for those traveling to Mount of the Holy Cross, this lodge is a favorite spot for weddings, picnics, reunions, etc.
The road continues beyond the lodge to Tigiwon Campground. It then climbs two miles further to two trailheads accessing the Holy Cross Wilderness, Half Moon Pass and Fall Creek. Back down the road, about two miles from the bottom, is the Cross Creek trailhead.
Tigiwon is one of the most popular two wheel drive roads in the area, and is only a couple of miles outside of the town of Minturn and the I-70 exit. Wildflowers are generally exceptional on this road.
Please do not "cut" around the switchbacks. Stay on the road to avoid erosion.
