“A "gravel grind" on 4x4 roads that provides some great views.”— Jared Crockett
There are many choices for how to ride this network of roads. All the roads interconnect in such a way that it is possible to create multiple loops and figure eights. You need to be somewhat wary as not every road can be used for looping. Some of them are short spurs that lead to dead-end camp sites. If you follow one of those, no biggie, turn around and go back.
The northernmost section of this road provides the most spectacular views looking west over the Estes Park valley and into Rocky Mountain National Park. This section of the road also passes through "the Notch" which is a major outcropping of boulders.
If you're into this sort of thing, you can multi-task on this ride. Get in some good riding as well as find a few geocaches!
