If you are looking for a bit of challenge and access to the lesser-traveled hiking trails within State Forest State Park, Ruby Jewel Road is going to be your hidden gem. This is arguably one of the harder trails within State Forest State Park and offers a bit of a challenge for a stock rig. The payoff for making it to the end is the hiking options that take you deep into the lush and unpopulated forest.

Since this is a designated route within State Forest State Park, a daily permit is needed unless you have opted-in for the Keep Colorado Wild Pass, which allows access to any Colorado State Park. All camping is designated here as well, and there are several yurts you can reserve if you'd like a bit more comfort while exploring this state park. There is no dispersed camping within the park.
