Tj Mt. Princeton?

Anyone been up there? I'm wondering if there's any good camping as well as wheelin' around there?

I don't know of any specific camp sites, but I remember seeing several while rafting the Arkansas South of Buena Vista. If you go over Cottonwood Pass to the West of Buena Vista, we have camped along the Taylor River, North of the Taylor Res.

The only specific 4x4 trail that I have heard of is Chinaman Gulch. Hope that helps.

Baldwin Lakes, Tin Cup Pass, Chinaman's Gulch, Grizzly Lake... many many more. There are several NF camp sites and the Hot Springs resort to stay at. If you expand beyond just that canyon there are probably 50 or more good trails within the vicinity of Buena Vista to hit. Best suggestion, get a San Isabel NF map, a couple of Topos for Chaffee and Lake Counties and pick a trail.
