Two Questions in Colorado

We are going to be staying at Dowdy Lake Campground at Red Feather Lakes, CO in August. When we leave we are going west on Hwy 14. Does anyone know of a dump station going west before we reach Walden?

Also, we are towing a 30’ Arctic Fox fifth wheel camper. Map shows quickest way is to take the 12.5 mile gravel road which is W CR 74e (Manhattan Rd.) which becomes N CR 69 and comes out at Rustic, CO on Hwy 14 where we go west. Forest Service mentioned some “steep” places and some “switchbacks”. Has anyone towed this road? Would you recommend doing this? Otherwise we will have to go back towards Ft. Collins and go south and get on Hwy 14 west—take twice as long, but we can do whatever is best/safest. THANKS

I wouldn't go so far as to say I recommend this route but I take my 34' motorhome towing a jeep or trailer on worse roads. Google maps shows a relatively wide smooth road. I suspect that your biggest problem will be weather...don't go this way if it is or has been raining. Next biggest problem is your trailer might fill with dust! Google maps terrain shows that going south you will be going downhill on the steep/curvy part of the road. Just go slow through there.

I you have time maybe you can take an afternoon trip and drive it in your truck then decide.

Think Thom had your answer on the”other” forum.
