Highlights

Highlight: Confirmed Road
Confirmed Road doesn't have a fancy name but does offer some serious off-roading in the area. For those looking to get away from the 4x4 crowds on trails like the nearby China Wall Road, this is a great alternative. A good number of the trails in the 110-square mile Badger Flats Trail Network are simple trails that are even maintained at some level; Confirmed Road is not. That lack of regular maintenance means that the trail is a little more difficult, technical, and of course, fun. The real payoff on this trail is just after the hill climb after cresting towards Figure 9 Road. The view of the mountains on the descent is breathtaking and picture-worthy all the way down.

Ran this trail from west to east in the Power Wagon. The trail itself was fun, but it did get narrow in a few spots. There was a lot of overgrowth since I think most vehicles using the trail are UTV's, but we only saw two at the beginning of the trail. It was a great trail for my wife to get some practice as a spotter. Never had to use the lockers, but I did have it in 4L for a good chunk of the trail.

Came off Beryllium and ran to WPt 3. Although not hard, there are some "interesting" obstacles to make you question your choice. Most are just narrow spots, but throw in a hard turn and a tree.... well you get the idea. There are bypasses for these but what fun is taking one of those unless you are driving a long wheelbase vehicle.

Great trail, enough obstacles to keep your attention but no threat of serious damage, my Xterra has about 12" of clearance between the frame and ground, and I am running 32 tires. I ended up catching the sliders pretty good twice, once was as I rolled over a loose rock it kicked up, the second I came down a rock step and caught it. I didn't have to use my locker but I tried the optional obstacle and it won. It ripped off the tire valve so I had to throw on my spare. Be aware that this trail is pretty narrow and a little overgrown in places, I wouldn't recommend a full size rig and any vehicle will probably end up with some pin striping. There was zero snow on or off the trail, but it did get a little slick in places, no problem with all terrain tires. DOWNLOAD MAPS BEFORE YOU GO there is no signal on the trail, it can make finding your way back a little interesting, not a serious threat of getting lost but still not something you want to worry about.

Super fun trail. Not much snow remains. A few side obstacles to hit as well. It's a fairly rocky road. I think 4 is a fair trail rating. Probably a good challenge for a bone stock but capable 4x4. My lifted 3rd gen 4runner on 33s had no issues.

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.

Took the Tacoma on this trail today (truck is actually built) And noticed it was a lot harder than the pictures and descriptions displayed. We also believe we didn’t follow the exact trail because the directions were not very good. The trail was fun though, but expect slightly harder than the pictures and description.

Great little trail. Took the wife and kids on a picnic. Nice and easy except the giant snow slush mud pile.

This turned out to be one of my favorite trails in the area, my wife did NOT like this one. She didn't like the rocky nature but the hill climb really threw her. If you have someone that doesn't like heights, they're probably not going to like this trail. For those of us who do love a little altitude, scenery, and a little difficulty, this is a winner and almost no traffic other than one group of ATV's.

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?!'.
