Review: Very easy technical terrain. A double track starts 3 miles from the road, and then ends 8 miles back from there. mostly steady up hill making it a lot of fun on the return trip.

Review: Out (to Monument Gulch Rd.) and back is the most common way of doing the ride. The loop that swimswithtrout describes is preferable to the Whitepines loop (INSANE climb) that is shown on the map.

Review: The first review is completely wrong as already noted.

Old Flowers Road is 12.2 mi long from Stove Prairie Rd to Pingree Park road. The first 3 miles which are what the original review covered is nothing but a maintained road sevicing all the private ranches along the way.

After 3mi, you'll get to the real deal and is best early in the year before the gate is opened to 4 wheelers. The dbl track trail is not as rutted /rocky as most moto trails in the area and is generally very smooth. It is marked by 2 long, steep climbs, and the following long descents over somewhat rocky terrain . It passes through thick Aspen glades, open meadows, and dense pine forest before the final steep DH to Monument Gulch Rd, another nice dbl track. Enjoy the great views of the Mummy Range on your way down (not the Rawahs ! )

Turn left up Monument Gulch and ride up a moderate grade for 2.6 miles and then it's ALL Downhill for 14 miles !!! The first 1 1/2 mi is down the narrow Monument Gulch dbl track until you reach Cnty Rd 44H the Buckhorn Canyon Rd which is maintained gravel.

Bomb down the next 12 mi of all twisty downhill until you get to the paved Stove Prairie Rd, hang another left and begin the grueling climb back up to your car 4 miles up the Rd.

Since it is a loop, you can park at the bottom of the road climb and take it as a "warm up" to get Old Flowers Rd, or you can reverse the loop.

In all, the loop is 33 mi long with about 4500' of climbing thrown in.

Review: This trail is actually longer than the 6 miles stated. After parking at the school, and going 3 miles, you reach the trailhead though a gate that may be open or closed. The road gets signifcantly steeper and rockier and eventually connects with the Monument Gulch road, just a few hundred yards before it connects with the Pingree Park road.

Similar Trail: Monument Gulch
