Trail Information

Highlights

Bockman Road is an alternate 4WD entrance into the Colorado State Forest near Gould, CO. The trail offers great views of the Crags, rugged peaks on the northern edge of the Rocky Mountain National Park. Wildlife is abundant and this is one of the best moose viewing areas in Colorado. The State Forest, operated by Colorado Division of Parks and Wildlife, offers many outdoor activities including hiking, off-roading, hunting, fishing, camping, and, during winter months, cross country skiing and snowmobiling. There are many other 4WD trails in this part of the state known as North Park.

Although typically open on June 15 each year, this route remains closed due to mud and snow. Colorado Parks and Wildlife will make the decision when this trail will open.

Drove this from 41 to highway 14. Trail is very easy up to the campgrounds then it gets a bit more difficult. Several steep climbs/decents await you as you climb back to 14. Fun trail, didn't run into any OHV's.

Trail was an enjoyable drive. Work is being done to the road and could be tricky if wet. Nice bull moose along the way.

The Colorado State Forest has finally opened the roads in the park. Park crew just completed a little bit of maintenance at the Hwy 14 intersection and about half way across. If wet, the road repair could be a bit muddy. Saw a bull moose on the trail near waypoint 4. This is becoming a usual event near this waypoint
