Great views of front range from Storm Mountain near 10,000 ft. Eastern end of F.S.153 passes through recovering burn area. Locked gate (except during hunting season) at eastern end of 153 stops you about 1.5 miles before Stove Prairie Road. Crossing private property beyond closed gate can result in $1,000 fine and/or one year in prison. All other roads dead end at gates to private property. The climb to Storm Mountain is very steep but the views are worth the effort. F.S. 153B has a scenic rock outcrop but not much to see after that. F.S. 153C descends steeply and gradually narrows to a hiking trail. The long ride east through the burn area is desolate but the terrain is fun. There’s an unmarked primitive camping area (no toilet) at Nelson Spring. (If there was a natural spring in the area, I couldn’t find it.). The ride beyond Nelson Spring on F.S. 345 was pleasant but uneventful.
