E-Bikes Allowed

Trail closed until June 15th, 2021.

On weekends, closed to bikes on ODD numbered days. So it is open to bike on all weekdays, and EVEN numbered weekend days.

Description

Not a destination in itself (unless you're looking for a very easy beginner ride), but a pleasant dirt road portion of the larger Centennial Cone loop.

There's a small working farm halfway through this ride. Be careful of horses and cows.

The Jeffco Trail map. Shows the 3 pertinent parking sites, Mayhem Gulch off of Hwy 6, and the Centennial Cone parking and the Camino Perdido Rd parking. The last 2 are easier start points.

The dirt road section (Elk Range Trail) isn't an exciting trail, but it sure is scenic.
