Driving down a National Forest Service Road...
These are called dikes by the locals, but may be the official name also.
They were horizontal strata that were uplifted by tectonic/seismic forces to the vertical position. They may run for miles.
I liked this one because the road was put thru it, and then those beautiful aspens this time of year.

on that road! It was 10 - 15 miles of 5 - 10 mph switchbacks and ruts in the San Isabel NF.
We stayed 2 nights, hiked the West Spanish Peak Trail (no, we didnt get to the top!)
my god my god
if more people would get outside, take that random-or-not-so-random freeway exit, and really truly deeply see what we have here in this country
the utter wonderful majesty
maybe we would have less people trying to tear down and destroy it.
West Spanish Peak Trail
I see the Dikes Trailhead on the map, but the dikes seem to be pretty scattered. Id like to take the family down there.
then look very very closely at whatever map system you are using and follow the forest service road that goes towards Aguilar, CO.
on edit again: County Road 46
It is on that road.
on edit: those coordinates are the Cordova Pass Campground.
I didnt know it had a name until I started researching it so I could answer your question!
I put that (above) in google maps and it went right there.
Go fast the aspen are turning and probably wont last long.
