The south half of this trail is fairly flat. However, after the creek crossing, it becomes narrow, rough and steep in places as it begins a long, scenic descent to Larimer County Road. Wildflowers were abundant on the north side when we drove it in mid July. A popular OHV area because of plentiful dispersed camping and many fun side roads to explore. Area is closed in winter from Dec.1 to June 14.

A new sign at the start of this trail calls this route “Sand Creek Pass Road” instead of “Sand Creek Road.” We will be renaming this road in the next edition of the Northern Colorado book. Otherwise, we didn’t find the trail much different than the last time we drove it in 2010.
