“An exciting descent on the backside of Emerald Mountain.”
Leslie Kehmeier on Jul 10, 2013
Getting There     GPX File     Print
4.6 Miles Singletrack Type 31’ Ascent -1,379’ Descent 6,849’ Low 8,198’ High
Description
Ridge runs from the top of Emerald Mountain down to Cow Creek. The trail is best down as a descent, a rowdy and fun one at that.

At the top intersection with Beall, Ridge drop initially with one quick climb and then a sweeping right hand turn through a high meadow. From here to the bottom, Ridge descends steadily along a fenceline, crossing an old doubletrack several times.

The trail travels through tight vegetation, mostly oak brush. Be advised, some of the bends in the trail are blind so balance speed with safety.

Every once in awhile the canopy breaks and you'll be treated to amazing views of the surrounding Western Slope landscape.

Towards the bottom of the route, Ridge intersects Rotary twice. Stay left to continue to the trail's terminus at Cow Creek.
