Matukat Road, also known as Goose Creek Road, is a busy road extending from Deckers to Lake George through the historic 2002 Hayman Fire burn scar. This terrain was the epicenter of the Hayman fire, which incinerated over 138,000 acres of forest, holding the record for Colorado's largest wildfire until it was surpassed in 2020.

This devastation left unparalleled panoramic views of the landscape in its wake. Just two miles in, the road opens up to reveal breathtaking sights of the valleys and the majestic silhouettes of nearby mountains such as Pikes Peak, Mount Evans, and the entire Rampart Range. A relatively accessible trail, Matukat Road offers locals and visitors the chance to absorb these epic landscapes and glimpse Colorado's recent history.
