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.

Did the trail today on a couple of dual sports. Absolutely amazing trail. Crazy technical switch backs all the way up the mountain to an amazing view. Trail was in great shape.

As advertised. Rocky steep trail, close off 70 so easy access. And then we hit first obstacle. Coming off big snow so mildly slippery. Took rightmost pathway. Friend needed winch off center tree to pop up. With his line i hit middle of obstacle and was glad for .120 rock sliders - had to backbout and kick end as far right as tree allowed. Had good attack line and powered up. Def a gamble on passenger body damage or front axle spin, but got enough traction. From there a bunch of mid sized rocks to roll over - good escape route to right. Next section was bot bad but big drop off to right - rear slid a little in light snow increased pucker factor. We hit 2nd obstacle and it wasnt bad - just needed to hit far left or right - buddy caught diff up middle. U turned after cause light snow. Full blast rolling big boy trail. Im in 2011 Jk with factory 4" and 35s.
