Overview

Rocky offroad trail includes difficult boulder field.

Due to its close proximity to Denver, this trail sees very heavy use. In the last few years, many large boulders have been exposed, creating near extreme conditions. A previously seldom-used side road at the bottom has now become the main trail. This section features a daunting challenge. The always challenging “Rock Garden” is at least twice as difficult as it was a few years ago. The trail climbs straight up the mountain and features high views of the I-70 corridor and Georgetown.

Very challenging trail. I enjoyed this trail so much l ran twice this spring and summer. First trip slid into tree at first obstacle and tore off a tail light. Second trip slid off Boulder in the rock garden and landed up against a tree. My buddies had to push against the top to prevent the tree from cracking my hardtop. I’ll be back for sure 2012 JKU 3”Rock Krawler suspension, 37’s
