Great trail, cool scenery. Rode it on a Sunday afternoon, and encountered only 3 other groups in 15 miles. It was a little sandy, but nothing too bad. Just wish the descent on FS Road 553 could be single track too.
I was a little confused by the directions. Here's what I saw:
The initial Colorado trail descent is 4 miles. At the second road crossing (FS Road 543) there is a culvert where the creek flows under the road. At the top of Miller Gulch, I didn't see a right turn, just a trail-head and campground. Go past the campground, then turn left onto FS Road 549 (Towards Bailey). When descending on FS Road 553, the second road that takes you back to the Colorado trail has signs for the rifle range.
