I haven't done Wheeler Lake so I cant speak for the experience. It looks pretty nice from the reviews I have read. Lots of good views and elevation gain...with a few good but very doable obstacles throughout. As for MSV/Coney Flats, as I mentioned it is one of my faves...partly because of the close proximity to the Front Range, but mostly because of the varied terrain. The trail winds through the woods for many miles encountering several large boulder obstacles that are challenging for a stock truck, but tons-o-fun for the modified rig. This trail is well known for the deep water crossing at the top. It is rarely less than 24" deep and can top out at 36"+ with snowmelt. Good place to stop and eat lunch...and watch ATVs get waterlogged trying to cross.
This is a multiuse trail so there can be a bit of traffic, but usually nothing serious. After MSV/CF, I usually ride over to Caribou Creek and make a quick jaunt through this short but fun trail and then back to Nederland...
