Trail Overview

Pool Table Road goes to the Wheeler Geographic area, one of two places in Colorado that have Hoodoos. It is a long winding road, about 1/2 of it is annoyingly bumpy but drivable in an average stock Jeep or truck. There is a section that is heavily rutted but can be done with careful wheel placement. If it were wet, this place would be a mess. While there is not much interest on the way, you are rewarded with a volcanic geological wonder that covers just 26 acres. Parts of this road are closed in fall during Elk rifle season.

Difficulty

It begins as a county road that any vehicle could do. However as it becomes a FS road, there are rocky sections and some decent hills with a few shallow water crossing. There is one section with very deep ruts that can be bypassed, or you can straddle the ruts.
