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

2.64.2 milesKilometers 738’225 m Ascent 8,009’2,441 m High 6% Avg Grade (3°)
Doubletrack Type -75’-23 m Descent 7,282’2,219 m Low 14% Max Grade (8°)
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.
