Francisco Loop is a maintained road within State Forest State Park that offers beginner drivers a place to test their skills. Advanced drivers won't find too much in the way of entertainment here. The trail also leads to a few designated campsites for people who want to spend a bit of time exploring this state park. This trail has its moments of scenery that showcase the taller peaks of the adjacent Never Summer Range and Rawah Wilderness.
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. There is no dispersed camping within the park.
