Highlight: 3 Sections
The South Park Ranger District in Pike's Peak National Forest is almost half of a million acres of forest to explore. The Badger Flats Trail Network is approximately 110 square miles. The tiny 3 Sections trail is only a quarter-mile of that, but worth a quick drive to run out and back. This trail won't take long but is great when combined with Figure 9 Road (FS 259) and it's other spurs for a full day of exploring the forest.

This trail is open, however, CAUTION. Colorado weather is unpredictable this time of year and there may be the occasional fresh snow fall or mud and melting snow. This trail is in an area of the state where snowfall levels have dropped for the season and the majority of the trails are dry, muddy and/or only have a small bit of snow on them. Again, please use caution if traveling on these trails until the dryer season.

This trail is at a high altitude within the state of Colorado and has no maintainence. As such, this trail should be considering impassable until spring.

A short little spur off Figure 9 Road. No great views or anything to be had but it is a less-traveled road and worth running real quick.

Mapping Crew - Colorado

Jen & JD moved to Colorado from Chicago in May of 2015 for work and brought with them a 2001 stock Jeep Wrangler that had been garage bound for two years. Within a month of arrival, all rusty 170,000 miles of it was shaking on Colorado trails and they've never stopped. As time as gone on, their 2001 TJ had to be traded and a 2015 Jeep JK has been added to the family. JD works as a Systems Engineer for a cable company and Jen runs a business from their home during the week to pay the bills. When the weekend hits, they're almost always hitting the trail. When Sunday night rolls around, the question turns to, 'so what's next week?!'.
