Report: This is a wonderful area for KLR 650 DS motorcycling. You can leave the front range (Denver), go over (barely noticeable) Sand Creek pass then go up to Hohnholz lakes and over the Medicine Bow Range to Kings Canyon on Roach Rd. Won't see many people up here. What I have seen is more elk than anywhere else.
