|The Dyers Park road heads off of County Road 15 through private property. You will climb a series of short switchbacks that will bring you up on the side of Agua Ramon Mountain. Here you will enter public lands and head around Agua Ramon Mountain on a two lane graded road. On the west side of Agua Ramon Mountain there will be a series of longer switch backs that will climb to the higher elevations on the mountain. The road will pass through aspen forests as it runs along the top of the ridge between Bear Creek and Embargo Creek heading north.
There will be a few spur roads along the way. Dyers Park Road will become rougher and narrower after passing the intersection with Bear Cutoff, FR615. The aspens will give way to pine forests as you continue to gain elevation and head north. There will be some small switchbacks along this section. After the intersection with Viers Creek, FR611, the road will become a one lane natural surface road that will have more rougher sections to navigate. At the end of Dyers Park road will be the La Garita SD Cut-off trail head and intersection with the Pool Table, FR600, road.
