Trail Information

Highlights

This 4x4 route winds in and out of the burn scar from the infamous Hayman Fire. The beginning of the trail provides access to a very popular, informal target shooting area and the spur along the top of the ridge features spectacular views of Pikes Peak and the burn area. There is one hill that can be mildly challenging for stock rigs but careful tire placement will get you through it. This is a more interesting route to the Rule Ridge trailhead than the standard county roads and you can combine this trail with other trails in the area to make a full day of offroad adventure.

Ran this trail on my way home after running some other trails in the area. The area is open to shooters again after being closed due to high fire risk earlier in the year. The rating on this trail should be changed to an easy "2" as the Big Hill has been smoothed out quite a bit and can be run in a 2WD now. There are few sections before the Big Hill that are a bit rutted, but nothing that can't be done in a 2WD vehicle and I saw several cars at the ranges.

This place is trashed. It’s like off-roading in a landfill. Big hill is smoothed out and had no problem making it up in 2wd.

Beautiful, sunny day with a nice breeze. A lot of shooters out for an early weekday. Explored 343 and 343B, some minor washouts and off camber ruts are present. The Big Hill is steep but nothing technical to note. The track can get a little tight in places so wider rigs beware.

The trail was in pretty good shape today. It was relatively dry with the exception of a few areas of snow in the wooded areas past the top of the hill. I really enjoy the trail as it was a good way to "stretch the legs" off my Gladiator a bit. The majority of the trail I ran in 4 wheel high except for when I climbed the Big Hill. There were a few shooters out this day, mostly before the Big Hill. This is the first time I drove the entire trail and found out the there are shooting areas the entire length of the trail.

Although the trail is open expect snow and be prepared for difficult conditions.
