The best offroad trail in Colorado.

Many consider this the best hard-core trail in Colorado, replete with stunning scenery, historical points of interest and thrilling obstacles. Heavy traffic on weekends oftens means waiting a while at obstacles like French Creek. Cleveland Rock is very extreme. I wouldn’t ride my ATV on this trail, but some people try. A real leg-breaker.


Trail Ratings Defined

One of the most difficult in the state, offering non-stop challenges. Minimum 33-inch tires, differential lockers and winch are basic necessities for the entire trail. Bring spare parts and don’t go alone.

No major update, all obstacles were passable, completed in an RzrS. Would not recommend doing it solo, just in case.


Rate this trail on a scale of 1 to 5.

The intro says it all. Took this on today with my '19 JLUR. Don't have a winch installed yet, but all the rest of the recommendations at the trailhead sign. 1/4 mile in, it was clear I wasn't going to try to go past the exit trail. Even with the factory 33's and lift of my Rubi, 4L, locked diffs, and released sway bar, I could not get thru without denting the frame in a couple places. Bring a spotter, and a wingman. If you don't meet the trail requirements, don't even bother, you won't finish the "easy" section....
