Trail Overview

This loop is really fun to explore, with its side roads and narrow, twisty terrain. There is a great overlook above the Air Force academy where you can relax and eat lunch. It is also a fun area to camp with a lot of different options inside the border of the park. You'll pass through some private land, so please be courteous. Unlicensed vehicles are permitted, and there is a staging area at the forest boundary.

Difficulty

Moderate. Roads undulate with banked turns and narrow spots. Marked side roads are steep in places with occasional rocky challenges. Tippy spot on F.S. 311A gets your attention.

most of the trail has around 4" of snow. the off shoot trails can be 6" to 1 foot of snow. it's a fun drive, just bring your recovery gear and don't go alone, especially on the off shoots. there's a little obstacle but not too bad. stick to the left of it and you're fine!
