Cisco is easily reached along Old Highway 6/50, that connects exits 204 and 214 of the interstate, and which near its west end links with Hwy 128 to Moab. The town is about half way along, to the south, near the point where the railway crosses the road (a siding is still in regular use), and the approximately one hundred buildings are visible from some distance away across the flat, otherwise rather featureless surroundings, though in the distance are ranges of reddish hills and cliffs, including those enclosing the Colorado River close to the Colorado stateline. One side road forks southeast, signed to Cisco Landing and Fish Ford (both access points to the Colorado River), and many of the buildings are found along here. One group of structures on the far side of town seems the most likely still to be inhabited, at least for part of the year, and indeed a few others may be as well, though the vast majority have clearly been vacant for a long time. Cisco is apparently a semi-popular camp stop for cross-state travelers on the interstate, and this accounts for some of the trash and damage to the buildings.
