|An Overlook in Trinidad, Colorado
If you've spent any time in Trinidad, you've probably noticed the rocky bluff with the town sign.
It's reminiscent of the famous "HOLLYWOOD" sign in California, isn't it? :) Well, a dirt road provides access for
and hikers to enjoy the beautiful scenery at the overlook. If you happen to be making
the long drive from Denver to
Albuquerque, why not stop halfway in Trinidad? Simpson's Rest is right off Interstate 25.
Directions: From I-25, get off on exit 15 and travel west on Goddard Avenue to its end.
Turn right on Nevada Avenue and then make your first left on North Avenue (County Road 69.2).
A dirt road leads all the way to the top. The road has some modest washboard sections, but an ordinary passenger car will make it just fine.
NOTE: The road is gated and is only open during daylight hours.
