Description

Easy to moderate. It starts flat and climbs several foothills/hogbacks. This trail can be rode as a short out-and-back, but is a great way to connect to Rim Rock Trail, Blue Sky Trail, Indian Summer Trail, and the Devil's Backbone Trail.

Watch for Rattlesnakes in the summer.

I wouldn't characterize this trail as "singletrack". The first mile from the parking lot to the restroom is drive-able in the stock pickup truck the City of Fort Collins uses to maintain the facilities. The next quarter-mile is singletrack—wide and smooth, but still single. Once the trail heads up around the ridge, it spreads out to roughly jeep-width on a very rocky old road bed, and continues to be that wide until it hits Rim Rock. The trail sees heavy foot/horse traffic, and the width does simplify passing between users. But while the climb up is a good workout, and there are occasional options for "hard" lines within the road bed, it's not a particularly engaging ride, especially on the descent back out.
