Description

The many, many spots along or near Bowman Lake Road. The Emeralds and Bowman Valley are both popular concentrations when the snow is gone.

Check the Emeralds/Bowman Valley conditions forum.

Getting There

Bowman Road starts humbly off the north side of highway 20, a short drive from where it merges into interstate 80. It's easy to miss on the first and second visit.
