The Tarryall is bordered on the north by Kenosha Pass, Hwy 24 on the south, the Lost Creek Wilderness to the east and CR 15 to the west. There is the Tarryall Valley, Tarryall Creek, Tarryall State Wildlife Area, the 180 acre Tarryall Reservoir, Sugarloaf Mt., 9951', Eagle Rock, 9677', Unnamed 9928', Unnamed 9111', Observatory Rock, 10073', Burntop, 11085', Topaz Mt, 11687', Puma Peak, 11570', Little Puma, 11449', South Tarryall, 11206'. It is a very beautiful place with a warm, soft beauty. The highpoint is Tarryall Peak, 11,902'.

The Tarryall is cut roughly two-thirds, one-third by the Tarryall Creek and Park County 77 which parallels the waterway. The eastern third contains parts of the Tarryall Mountains. The Puma Hills run down the center in the southern end of the region. The western two-thirds consists of rolling hills and rugged outcrops gradually rolling down into South Park.

This area is great in Fall and on warm Winter days. It is never crowded. There are obscure routes here. The crags can be hard to find.

There is primitive camping along Tarryall Rd, County Rd 77, and offshoots. It's fairly dry, so expect to bring in your own water.

There is good flyfishing in the area.

The GPS coordinates are not accurate. Do not use them for navigation.

This is part of a reorganization of the vicinity.

Getting There 

From Denver, take US 285 to Jefferson, and turn left on Park County 77.

From Colorado Springs, take US 24 West to Lake George. Just past Lake George, turn right (northwest) on Park County 77 (Tarryall Road). Use caution with the potholes on County 77 south of Stagecoach Rd. and on the smaller roads. Between dusk and dawn, deer and elk can be road hazards!
