Vehicle Types


Forest loop covers steep area south of Idaho Springs.

This loop covers an area immediately south of Idaho Springs. You can reach start of the trail in just a few minutes. Not particularly scenic because much of the trail is in the trees. Covered shelter at Waypoint 05 is handy if you have a group that wants to get together. Lots of dispersed camping nearby. Trail is closed to motorized traffic Dec. 2 to June 14.


Trail Ratings Defined

Applies to just a few places. Most of the trail is easy to moderate. The closest thing to a real obstacle comes after Waypoint 03. Aggressive, high-clearance stock SUVs can do it, although novice drivers may find it challenging.

This loop has been closed just south of waypoint 5 in the book. Steel gates with locks and barb wire fences and signs saying private property, trespassers will be prosecuted. It looks closed for about 1 mile. You can still go most of the way around but you have to come back the way you came.
