Highlights

Highlight: Quarry Road
This moderate trail near Woodland Park, Colorado has a gem of an obstacle that doesn't get a lot of attention because of its well-known neighbors. The trail is not long, but the long Rock Climb will test new and experienced drivers but is a little less intimidating than the nearby Moab Hill on Flake Road. The reward for climbing the obstacle is a nice drive through the Colorado forest that breaks out into some scenic views of the Front Range and Pike's Peak. This trail is part of the Rainbow Falls Trail Network in southern Colorado, an approximately 15 square-mile section of the Pike National Forest with miles of dirt to explore. The area is open year-round and is a popular destination for the Front Range of Colorado.

This is nice short trail with a "mini" Mini Moab near the top that you can play on. Ran it numerous times up and down to enjoy a little off roading.

We ran this trail the opposite of the description and enjoyed the assent, it felt a little like we were passing through someone's camp. Once to the top we played on the rock obstacle trying several lines, it is a fun little play area with some shade for spectators to watch from.

As of 4/1 it is safe to say this trail is open, though winter and spring snow may still exist on the trail. Never go out without others and recovery gear, but enjoy spring in Colorado!

Took Illinois Gulch (350A) to the front (?) of the trail. The steps were pretty dry, a little snow. Took the right line, no issues in a stock Tacoma OR. Really fun little climb, the left might be more excitingly for an experienced driver, but this was good practice since I'm still learning.

This trail is located at a higher alitude of Colorado and at this time of year should be considered impassable for any regular off-road user. Some people may be able to manage these trails with the correct gear, emergency equipment, and rig. Travel with caution.

Fun trail with a pretty decent obstacle. I took the left side and just about bottomed out with my stock skid plate. 4” of suspension lift with 35s on an LJ. This trail is probably best when combined with other trails in the area.

I ran this trail after running Flake Road and Illinois Gulch. While Flake Road has the most well-known obstacle in the area, this was a pleasant surprise both for the lack of traffic and the surprising little climb that this trail has. With the scenery, I've gotta recommend this one to anyone wheeling in the area, make this one part of your day.

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?!'.
