A popular 4×4 road due to its close proximity to Fort Collins. Private landowners on the eastern end are not happy that the public is allowed to cross their land to get to the forest. Please pass through quietly; do not stop for any reason. Once in the forest, you’ll find lots of dispersed camping. Entire route is CLOSED TO OHVs. Gates open about June 15 if the road has dried out enough. Call ahead to be sure.

When we redrove this trail, we saw that the Forest Service has done a lot of work on the trail to repair damage from the High Park Fire. There were a few rough spots along the route, but overall we found the trail easier than we did when we drove it in 2010. We now rate the trail easy instead of moderate.
