ROCKY FLATS ORV TRAIL
Length: 5 miles
Open to:Hiking, mountain bicycles, motorcycles, all-terrain vehicles, and four-wheel drive vehicles
Mostly just a bumpy gravel road with no real obstacles. There are some interesting side spurs that offer more challenge.
The trail follows a multi-purpose woods road over piney ridges and through hollows of oak and yellow poplar forest. View timber stands in various stages of development from young regenerated stands to mature forest. Openings in the forest canopy offer vistas of Grassy Mountain. This is an excellent beginner trail for mountain bikers and allterrain vehicle riders. Caution: The trail is open to mixed vehicle travel. Watch out for oncoming vehicles.
Directions: Take U.S. 411 north from Chatsworth about 6 miles. Turn right on Grassy Street and proceed across the railroad tracks to the T-intersection. Turn right, go about 300 feet, and turn left onto Forest Service Road 630. Travel about 4 miles to the 630D on the right. Limited parking is available across the creek.
