Trail shared by Nick Wilder

Awesome singletrack - smooth, flowy, with beautiful descents and moderate climbs

Electric Mountain Bikes Allowed

Features -none-

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

Description

A beautifully built trail high above Clear Creek Canyon. Makes a good out and back ride, or better as part of the Centennial Cone loop Ride.

This is a good example of modern, sustainable mountain bike trail building.

Beautiful, and super fun down hill, steep climb, technical in places. You have to take a second Jeep trail that's over 3 miles to get back to the car 12mi — 2h 35m
