Description
Best ridden downhill. Start at the top of the Belcher Hill climb and ride West to East. Take your reflectors off and lower your seat post all the way down, you're going to need it!

From the start to the intersection with Sawmill Trail is rocky and rooty with water bars. Loose over hardpack with tight switchbacks and water bars. There are also some planked sections and a really nicely high-banked corner.

After the sawmill trail intersection to the first climb, the trail is more of the same. Rapid fire drop after drop. Keep your speed up and your wheels squared to the bars. Soil goes from loose over hard to hardpack soil.

From the first climb back to Blecher Hill the trail follows the pattern of rolling climb, descend, climb, descend. Some climbs are steep and loose.

Cool ramps make it (a little) easier to climb up the end of Mustang Trail (Golden, CO)
