This is an excellent trail. The first 3 miles are on the Colorado trail which is well marked and maintained, only a few rocky sections and a lot of downhill. At the intersection of Wurtz Ditch Road trun right up the road and continue for about 1/2 a mile and return to the forest, the trail is marked by blue diamonds in the trees. This section has a few marshy areas and care shound be taken when navigating through them. The trail eventually reconnects with the Colorado Trail for a climb back to the parking area. This ride is at >10,000ft and should be ridden in the summer months. Note: There are trail maps at the trailhead mapping this route making it easy to navigate.
