  • It's kinda in the middle of nowhere, travel down several miles of gravel roads to get there, but they are in good shape. I would advise anyone who is in the area to go see them. According to scientist...  more »
  • These amazing rock formations are well worth the drive from I-70 or Oakley to get there. Not like it's crowded, either.  more »

  • Love them!!! Many great memories of playing and climbing them for many years, grew up just south of them. Wish I could climb them one more time to take pics of my friends and families names. :-(
  • Amazing place. Beautiful natural arch. Definitely worth a detour for a couple hours. You'll have nice photos. About 8 miles on a well maintained dirt road.
  • On our way to RMNP, we made a special stop to see these rocks. Absolutely amazing! You've got to be there to see their beauty. They are in the middle of the open field. No good eats around though, I'm afraid.
  • Amazing place. The dirt road was in a perfect condition even though it rained 3 days in a row. Come there to see the sunrise or watch the sunset.
  • Be advised that some driving will be done off-road..We went after it had rained and had a mudding experience getting there..We had a Jeep so we made it fine but if it has been raining and you don't own a 4x4, proceed with caution. I'm sure in the summer it's easier to get to. Such a rewarding experience at the end.
