“A rutted fire road followed by nice singletrack.”

Description
Also marked as Fire Road 233. It makes the most sense to ride this as part of the Sugarloaf to Gordon Gulch Loop.

Use the MTB Project mobile app or you'll most likely get lost!

From the peak to peak highway 72, start in a well-signed primitive campground. Look for signs for FR 226 and FR 233. When in doubt, follow 233 or use the mobile app. It is extremely confusing in here. Many side roads go up and down very steeply but if you stay on the correct one (generally taking left turns) it's relatively flat.

Follow this web of roads for about 2 miles until you arrive at a singletrack that follows a creek down the valley. There are trails on both sides of the creek, but you want the much more obvious one on the west side of the creek that is marked 233.

Follow this singletrack on easy ground for a quarter mile, than navigate a steep section of rocks about 100 yards long. Some people may walk this section.

Then there's more easy singletrack for a bit over a mile down a really fun descent through nice forest and meadow.

You'll end in a small neighborhood and follow Primos Rd which leads down to Sugarloaf Rd.
