Great hike, very scenic and lightly trafficked.
DO NOT use Google Maps to get there - it takes you into Glade Park and onto B 1/2 Road and that is incorrect....
From Rimrock Drive in Colorado Nat’l Monument (near Black Ridge/Upper Liberty Cap Trailhead) turn onto 16 1/2 Rd (leaving park and going toward Glade Park) and just after leaving the park you will see parking on your right - turn in there.
There is a kiosk with map and directions, and a gate. Check before you go to,see if it is open, with BLM. This leads to the Black Ridge Upper and Lower roads - each open different times of year.
High Clearance 4WD is a good idea, although a great deal of it can be traveled with SUV.
NatGeo Map Trails Illustrated #502 shows the route.
