Colorado Overlook Road Professional Review and Guide

"This short but interesting jeep trail is a favorite among mountain bikers. The beginning of the road is conveniently located at the visitor center parking lot and, although there is no water along the way, the roundtrip ride can easily be completed in a few hours. There are a few sandy spots, but most of the route is over relatively well packed dirt and slickrock.

The first 3.0 miles of this road can be driven by almost any car, but beyond that the road gets more and more rocky. High-clearance 2WD vehicles can usually make it all the way to the end; however if you are driving an ordinary passenger car you will probably have to walk the last 2.6 miles. Road conditions: With care the first 3.0 miles of the road can be driven by most ordinary cars, but the last 2.6 miles definitely requires a vehicle with high clearance. This is also an excellent road for mountain bikes. No permits are required."
