Description

The Hartman Rocks Trails are a network of both dirt roads and single track trails. It is one of the first areas to melt off in the spring so it may be accessible when other areas are still muddy or snowed in. These routes wander through rolling hills of sagebrush interspersed with scenic granite rock formations and Cottonwood groves.

The area is dominated by an interesting geologic formation called a ring dike about 6 miles in diameter. On the western edge of this formation is the Aberdeen Quarry that was worked in the late 1800s to provide high quality granite for the State Capitol building in Denver.

From the base area, you can park and walk or continue to drive up the hill and park at the top beyond the cattle guard. You can venture out onto a variety of trails from there. The single track trails are marked with numbered posts on each end. These are portrayed on the map that accompanies the Hartman Rocks brochure - available free in town.
