Bill Moore Lake/Empire Loop
The Bill Moore/North Empire Loop is a network of roads for OHV opportunities located north of Empire.
This road is very rocky and steep, especially to Bill Moore Lake. A 4-wheel drive, high-clearance vehicle is highly recommended.
Refer to the Clear Creek Ranger District's Motor Vehicle Use Map for more information about OHV opportunities in the area.
Note: Due to high elevation, the area is not generally snow-free until late June or even July in some years. Best late spring through fall.
