“A fast and technical downhill from Caribou to Eldora.”

From the ruins of the ghost town of Caribou, head up a bit further and turn south. After a pleasant ride through meadows and forest, the trail drops steeply down a fun and fast technical trail to the town of Eldora. You'll pass a pond (look for moose) and have some great views of Eldora and the Indian Peaks on the way.

The ride is an OHV road that is closed to motorized vehicles on both ends and is reverting a bit back to more of a trail.

Also known as Forest Road 505.
