Map Drive

To Largo Canyon Trailhead
From Alpine head east towards New Mexico on highway 180 to FR 281 (Blue River road). Turnoff is across from Luna lake. Head approximately 23 miles to the Blue Administrative site and that's were the TH starts. On drive down Blue River road you will pass numerous awesome car camping sites. You'll have to ford the Blue river in your vehicle to get to the TH. I've been to the TH between 5-10 times and the Administrative site has always been vacant and locked. No services in Blue.
