Easy fun dirt road. Loved the red rock formations. Check the dried river beds for quartz and rose quartz. Bring bug spray too. The mosquitos were brutal.

Visited this area to check out the trails after going to Cañon city. Nothing wild, just a fun easy trail. Keep an eye out for livestock on your way in - lots of ranches in the area. I ran it in my slightly modified Subaru Outback. Overall a great place for beginners or just for fun!

I visited BLM Road 5830 with a small crew from Colorado Land Cruisers. The road is in good condition as it appears that the BLM has done some smoothing/leveling on the south end (from County Road 69 to the Colorado Chill Spot (Stone House) at Waypoint 7.

Nice little dirt road to connect up shelf road and phantom canyon while staying off pavement as much as possible. Just a decent dirt road with no issues.

Was trying Braille method to connect to Shelf Road. Found this road in error. Fun though. I will return.
