From Ouray, take Highway 550 south just one-half mile, then turn right onto the Camp Bird Road. Proceed up the Camp Bird Road approximately 5 miles, then take a left onto Forest Road 869.0. The road crosses Canyon Creek, climbing along the cliffs and looking down over the famous Camp Bird Mine. The ascent up to Imogene Basin is rough and steep. There are spectacular wildflower displays in this basin during the mid-summer months.
