Anyone have info on the Conejos campground area?? It's of Fdr 250 and which parallels the wilderness area on the east side... I would like to know if there are many or any bridges that would get you over the Conjeos River and allow access to the wilderness area?? All input is highly appreciated

Hey sasqy, I'm looking at hunting the north end of 751 here in 2 weeks and I would love to pick your brain on a few basic things if you don't mind. I tried to send you a PM but my account doesn't meet the requirements yet.

On our map Slide is South of Lake Valecito. We camp at the end of Beaver Meadows Road. Between (again what my map shows) Baldy and Slide is where most of the elk were seen and the bulls taken that we saw.
