This is not a hiking trail. It's a 4wheel drive road. Not sure if or why anyone would want to hike this. Maybe AllTrails covers 4x4 roads and I never knew it until now. As a 4x4 trail I'd give it three stars and as a hiking trail I'd give it one.Since I view this as a hiking forum one star is what it gets.

Me and my family took this road with our jeep wrangler (that is lifted) off roading. The first part was quite easy and we thought we could drive the whole way pretty easily. We soon realized there were many, MANY rocks and tough spots. This road is definitely not made for off road driving. If you end up going off road driving on this trail, please make sure your car or truck is lifted and you are ready for an adventure because it sure is. That was definitely not worth the 3 hour drive.

Great trail for a four wheel enthusiast. Great scenery throughout and never boring for a few hours of fun. Stock vehicles besides a Subaru can do this easily.

Gate was closed and locked. Closed for the winter season? Found Parachute Road close by as an alternative moderate off roading adventure.

this trail is awesome! i ran it the way described here, luckily, because it was super icy. this is the downhill direction (west to east) but i can't wait to try it the other way (uphill) in the summertime. definitely some harder obstacles than i've seen from the usual moderate rating but everything gnarly has an easy way. if you'd like to see a video of the run i have one up at:

Pretty views. Not too tough, section east of the central part of the trail has a few challenges.

This is a great trail that doesn't take too long to get to. Nice side trip while headed up to Estes Park. Trail is pretty easy for the most part, a few rocky areas that will require some clearance and 4WD. Some nice views and places to stop and picnic. There is often a lot of motorcycle and ATV traffic.

This is a great trail.
Don't rate a trail 1* because you don't want people to use it. Most people are aware of the homes in the area(can't really miss them) and other users of this recreation area. The few who don't are idiots and shouldn't affect the rest of is.
To run the entire trail you will need good clearance and 4 wheel drive but only for two spots. The rest is pretty tame. It is listed as difficult in this app but I would say overall it's more like moderate. Hiking trail on the Big Elk Meadows Side(east). Plenty of camping from one end to the other, no water though so bring what you need. Don't let one guy's review keep you away from this great trail. So close with easy access and just what is needed for those emergency escapes to the woods.
