Big Al Trail-Transfer Campground

Near the trail head for the West Mancos Trail at the Transfer Campground is the Big Al Trail, a 0.33 mile no barriers interpretive trail that leads to a lookout platform.

Big Al was a local Forest Service worker who was injured fighting the 1988 forest fires at Yellowstone National Park.

Big Al's Trail is a wide graveled route with an easy grade and frequent benches. Along with signs interpreting some of the local wildlife there is a spectacular view of the West Mancos Canyon.
