Coney Flats Road

Trail Meter: 

A road?!?  Seriously, it's a road, but it's not for the faint of heart.

Coney Flats Road starts at the NW end of Beaver Reservoir. It is a gnarly babyhead laden 4WD road only for extremely modified vehicles. Climbs aren't very steep, just rocky. But it leads you to Coney Flats Lake, offering beautiful views of Buchanan Pass.

Looping this trail with Buchanan Pass gets you one of the best technical downhills in the Front Range. Finish the loop by riding Sourdough from Camp Dick back up to Beaver Rez. Riding time is between 2 1/2 to 3 1/2 hours depending on your technical abilities.
