A fun, quick loop around Doe Mountain, worthy of a few laps.

Overview

This is a nice link up of a some newer and some older trails in the Dry Creek area. It is a pretty short, quick loop which makes it nice if you have limited time or for beginning riders.

Description

From the Aerie Trailhead, head southeast towards the Cockscomb on the Aerie Trail. When you reach the Cockscomb you'll head north towards the Dawa and Cockscomb trails. This whole first section is generally moderate, with some twists and turns and very short climbs and small rock obstacles.

At the T junction you'll turn left (west) on the Cockscomb Trail, an easy old two-track that takes you through a fence and eventually meets up with the Aerie trail north of Doe Mountain. Turn left here and head up the Aerie trail which climbs somewhat steeply up some switchbacks and then winds through pinyon juniper forest and some easy/moderate rocky sections on the side of Doe Mountain; you'll pass the Doe Mountain Trail and the paved road to the Aerie housing development before ending right where you started, at the Aerie trailhead.
