Description

After the long climb up Red Canyon Road and Lookout Mountain Road, you are rewarded with some of the best singletrack riding anywhere. Beginning high on the south rim of Glenwood Canyon, the trail meanders through thick pine forest and numerous fields of wildflowers and lush greenery. Never does the trail depart from smooth tacky and narrow singletrack.

Along its entire length, you are rewarded with excellent views of the canyon and in places, you can see the Colorado River way down below. As you near the end of this section, you are rewarded with a fantastic downhill romp that is the Boy Scout Trail.

amazing trail! all major tree falls are cleared. Trail still needs some trail cleanup but is entirely rideable. One of the best in the valley!
