Camping at the Black Cloud TH?

Postby boleslav » Fri Aug 31, 2012 12:36 pm

We are planning to hike Elbert from the Black cloud TH.

Would you know if there are any spots we can put up a tent near the TH. On worst case we can sleep in the car, but a night in the tent is more comfortable.
thank you.

It's a very small trailhead. You could probably park and set up a tent near the start of the trail -- which isn't too far from where you park.

Park at the TH. Like Terry said, it's small. Walk up the 'road' for a few minutes and look to your right. You'll see a small clearing with a firepit across the stream. Camp there! :)

There's several places to tent camp at the trail head. I've camped there several times this year and last week to hike Belford/Oxford on Tuesday and walked to the road to watch the Pro Cycling tour on Wednesday. Except a truck with a camper there was no else there. Very nice. Vault toliets are down the road 1/4 mile at the camp ground.
