Trail Overview

The Rainbow falls riding area is on the north side of Hwy 67, about 17 miles southwest of Deckers, CO, or 17 miles north of Woodland Park, CO, with easy access to the parking lot just off the highway. The parking lot offers lots of parking, a map of the area, and toilets. Arrive early on the weekends as this is a popular area for 4x4 clubs, and the parking lot gets quite busy. Keep a sharp eye out for other riders and vehicles. This trail is connected to the Rainbow Falls area but is restricted to 50" and under, whereas the rest of Rainbow falls is multi-use trails. This provides an area less busy than the rest of rainbow falls due to the width restrictions. This trail is excellent for beginner Riders as it is flat and wide open with very few obstacles. There was a fire in this area a few years ago, which allows for some nice views of the local area, including Pikes Peak. There are plenty of places to stop for lunch or pictures, and plenty of wildlife in this area, deer, wild turkeys, bald eagles, etc. This trail is open year-round, allowing for many different styles of riding, dry and dusty in the Summer, snow-covered trails in the winter, and wet and muddy in the spring as the snow melts and the rain comes.
