Beautiful views but very poorly marked trails. Would be very good for mountain biking but not as good for hiking. Would be good for snow shoeing

Trails not always marked very well. Beautiful views, but very very long hike.

This is average for Colorado standards. Still great for getting the dog out. One or two solid up hills, but quick.

Trail running, biking, and riding seems like a good idea for the next outing.

The terrain went from rocky to sandy. The main road is great for all levels of riding. Single track can get tricky pretty quickly.

Great area for camping and biking. As for hiking, you're on a dirt road a lot of the time and it was easier than expected, but we'll defiantly be back for camping!

It's fun, quite easy to get lost back there. Lots of up and down, not like straight up and then straight down. Some technical sections, but they are what you make it, good place to spend the day, lots of trails to explore.
