Extremely difficult, but popular hardcore route. 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 featuring the daunting first obstacle. 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. High Point 11,050 ft., Best time to go: Late June-early October. Located in Arapaho National Forest. For current conditions call Clear Creek Ranger District (303) 567-3000. Short sections of moderate road connect a series of steep boulder challenges. Highly modified vehicles only. Lockers are a must. Unlicensed vehicles are allowed, but trying to get an ATV or UTV up this trail would be almost impossible.
