Fun trail with great views from the top.

Great trail would highly recommend!! About a mile or so before you reach the falls the trail splits you can either go right towards the falls or left up the mountain. Going left will take you up to the cell towers on the peak of the mountain. Views are amazing. Trail is pretty rocky and some big washed out ruts in a few areas make this difficult for any vehicle without some good clearance.

Great loop, easy to do, plenty to see, plan 2 hours for this trail
02 Suzuki Vitara, no lift, highway tires, slow and steady. And yes, the navigation works on this trail

Awesome trail, little rough in the beginning. Smooth sailing afterwards.

Decently easy trail, but wouldn't recommend cars/crossovers take this. Helped a gentleman with a popped tire in his Lexus CUV. Has quite a bit of sharp rock areas and a few washed out dips but anything with ground clearance and decent sidewalls can make it. The falls are really pretty. Camping spots not far from falls, but it does get windy at night.

really fun trail, not scenic but a nice challenge. I did this in a stock JL sport with upgrade a/t tires without too much issue.

Easy trail with moderate spots. Some drops over 18 inches. Can be a little slick where there’s snow. No problem at all for our vehicle (jk wrangler with 3 1/2 lift and 35 tires), but maybe smaller tires or less clearance could be a problem in a couple spots. Great views and many spots to pull off or camp. Saw several other vehicles along the way(Saturday in October), so I would consider it moderately trafficked today. I have added this as one of our favorites for an easier trail.

Quick little pop in this afternoon. Was fresh snow on the ground and some icy areas in other parts. My first trail and review so I was thinking about the braking coming down. No problems in a stock Tundra. Hope to do this one again in the summer.

Not a fun off-road trail/road, but destination is awesome! Road is just bumpy and rocky and dusty. Trail 1-2 stars, destination 5

Easy drive up to the fork where we ran into plenty of snow.

BLUF: this is not an easy trail! This is a moderate trail. At least 3 spots that required technical driving and someone guiding you. Not entirely a problem, made it more fun, but you shouldn’t go alone. Nice little pullouts to grab lunch and a beverage. Scenic for a the majority. I love how close to Denver it is!

Easy drive with many old mining structures. Views from the drive are so so. The good part is it is close to other trails.

great trail! took a bone stock 99 Jeep Cherokee with 31" all terrain tires on this trail and made it with no problems. was able to do most difficult sections, but had to swerve around some areas because I didn't have lockers. great trail making for lots of fun

Nice trail. Was easy enough in my '14 Tacoma Baja. nice trail tips in app made navigation a breeze.

stick time in 2008 jeep jk sport with 2018 rubicon wheels and tires minamal. off road experienced only. stock jeep WITH large tires made it no problem. NOT for faint of heart but completely navigable with patience and good equipment. Steps is only technical portion. you will know when u reach them. weather comes out of nowhere. worth the trip and understandable why it's on jeeps badge of honor trail list.

Fantastic off roading experience. Snow and rain made it a bit slippery and had to take it real slow but crazy beautiful views.

The mining stuff was cool to look at, but the trail was really short.

This was a good off-road trail. We did it with our 2004 Land Rover Discovery II stock and Copper Adventurer HT tires (yes HT). Granted that when possible we used the moderate "bypasses". For those more "difficult" sections we did take advantage of everything that our truck has to offer, 4 low range, diff lock and traction control. Bottom line, it is doable with the right rig, even stock and some experience (we did the 100 miles of the White Rim in Moab using the same Disco in exactly the same stock configuration).

The first 2.5 miles are a little rough, then the last 3 are nice and smooth. Made it threw without 4wd most of the trail in a stock 4Runner. Fun trail with awesome views, even saw a double rainbow!

Always a fun trail. It is fun to go down and drive into such a scenic area. The problem with this trail is the idiots who think they are cool or something and take their dads Rav4 down. It clogs up the trail and is moronic. T-case and transmission are your friend on this one.

Attempted this in a stock Subaru Crosstrek. Didn't get very far, clearance wasn't an issue but the stock tires couldn't grip the soft sandy dirt. I think after a set of all terrains and maybe some underbody protection (didn't scrape but not sure what the rest of the trail looks like) I'll attempt it again (with my brother's Rubicon tagging along). I'm new to "soft-roading" so I don't really know what an easy trail looks like but I think this might be miscategorized.

would not attempt in a stock or even moderate rig. Pretty easy in my 4 seat UTV. Nice trail with some good views.

It’s not all that easy people. Don’t know who rates these things. It was a BLAST! But not entirely easy. Many parts were a solid moderate. There were a ton of places to get off the marked path! The rocks were beautiful. Wish we would have been there last week when more of the aspens would have held their leaves but it was still beautiful.

Sweet trail close to town, has a couple areas that require some ground clearance but nothing major. The Aspen trees are all starting to change color and look awesome.

Awesome views!

This is a beautiful driving tour. Many places to stop for scenic photos. While dogs can travel in your vehicle, not all hiking trails are dog friendly.

Great little trail, one of my favorites so far. I have a 2016 JK Rubicon with 3.5" lift and 35's. Quite an easy one with a couple fun challenges. I only saw a couple people on the trail all day. Leaves are changing and it was just a beautiful ride. Not very rocky at all. Didn't even air down.
