Located in Mineral County (95 percent of which is national forest public access land), the Wheeler Geologic Area is truly one of Colorado's most unique and fascinating attractions. The result of numerous volcanic ash flow eruptions, this geological phenomenon has shaped itself into a city of spiny pinnacles and dark-seated caverns. Its towering spires and sheer cliff walls, rising directly from the middle of the forest like petrified trees, give the impression of a ghost's castle. But as with anything worthwhile, the way to the Wheeler Monument is not an easy one. The route begins at 10,840 feet and climbs to 12,000 feet and includes tough climbs, fast descents, deep ruts, and large rocks. Mountain bikers must leave their bicycles outside of the Wheeler Geologic Area, but a short half-mile hike delivers you to this bizarre geological wonder. Terrain: 4WD road8- most of which is quite manageable, though there are a number of steep rock and rooty sections
