Overview

Just north of Woodland Park, Flake Road is a bucket-list item for Wheelers in Colorado. It's a well-used trail that has, over time, branched different paths, each providing a unique challenge. The main attraction is "Mini-Moab," known for its Utah-like red rock formations. It's a significant, formidable obstacle that offers varying degrees of difficulty over large boulders and shelves, drawing off-road enthusiasts from all corners of the state. Part of the 15 square mile Rainbow Falls Trail Network in Pike National Forest, Flake Road is a popular spot open all year and can be busy in the summer with people testing the rigs. So, if you're up for a thrilling ride coupled with stunning views, Flake Road is your destination.
