For off road driving, you can drive up Coffee Pot Road first, so you can head downhill on the Transfer Trail and enjoy the views at Windy Point and above Glenwood Springs. However, since there is a large convenient staging area at the bottom of the trail, this route starts at the bottom. The bottom also has many side trails to explore, including a challenging 50"-wide ATV trail. If you are not camping at the top and just want a single-day adventure, start from the bottom as described here. Trail is very steep and narrow at the bottom with tight brush in places. Above Windy Point, mud is the challenge. Some driving experience is recommended, especially going uphill.

The trail was perfect for off road driving. Stock Jeep did just fine and there was minimal traffic. The views were absolutely gorgeous of Glenwood Springs. Difficulty was easy to moderate. I will definitely drive this trail again.

Well maintained trail. Pretty steep in parts. Just wide enough for an suv/truck if you stay on the main trail. There aren’t too many places to pull off for opposing traffic but there are good spots to turn around along the way. I took my stock FJ up and had no issues. I would not recommend in the wet seasons or late winter. Great views along the way.

I hiked from the upper parking lot. Mostly clear trail until mile 2 and then the trail starts to get wet. I finally turned back at 3.5 miles where there was still a bit of snow on the trail. It was too muddy to hike further. Awesome views and I can’t wait to hike it again when it drys out.

Trail technically not open yet but the gates were open and we didn't know until it was too late. Trail is in good condition and isn't too difficult.

From a Guy who has grown up in TN and wanted to try what was out west in off road trails this is by far some of the most fun that I have had easy to drive in my FJ cruiser did not have to engage the locker or traction aid super fun and great views as well as the trail is moderately traveled and not too crazy light traffic for my day definitely going back

Beautiful trail that requires low 4WD and high clearance. We did it in a stock Sport Jeep.
