“A moderate cruise up an old dirt road to a nice viewpoint. A good way to add miles to Walker Ranch.”

Description
Though rated green, sections have a 12-13% grade which can be steep for beginners. The ride passes through mostly open meadow with great wildflowers from May through July. There are a few aspen stands, and then you finish at a wooded overlook with good views including Boulder Canyon, Longs Peak, and the Indian Peaks.

Combine this with Walker Ranch to make a good, much harder day.
