Basic trail. As far as off road it is a well maintained dirt road. Lots of traffic in the fall (foot, bikes and cars). Very scenic in the fall and a beautiful drive.

Drove this trail for the fall colors and it did not disappoint. As far as off roading it is really just a well-maintained dirt road, no 4x4 needed. When the fall colors are out it is a very busy trail with bike riders, hikers, and cars. The colors are worth it though, but it is busy.

Nice mountain views and interesting historical exhibits at the summit. Lots of quantity and variety of wildflowers especially if you get out into the meadows and hike the Black Powder Pass trail from the summit.

Hiked Black Powder Trail with a 6 year old and 8 year old. Everyone had a great time and enjoyed getting to have a snowball fight on The 4th of July in what little snow was left!

Nice easy road. Dry conditions- at present time the road is clear W/o obstacles, pretty much any normal car could do it (unless you have low profile tires then wouldn't recommend it). Great views and a couple of historic sites. Definitely recommend for beginner 4x4ers or those just looking for a leisurely trail.

I'm only giving this three stars because I didn't get to experience the 4X4 road due to it being closed today. Unfortunately it's hard to find anywhere online to find out about its current status. The ranger station is closed on the weekend in Breck. Call M-F to find out road conditions and save yourself a trip if that's your intent. Trail open to hiking and biking. I will be back. I didn't hike.
