Trail shared by J Erik Hartel

A sketchy bit of unnamed singletrack that connects southeast AFA to Falcon Trail.

Description

This is a fun, but sometimes sketchy bit of singletrack through open fields and scrub oak in the southeast quadrant of the US Air Force Academy. It's sketchy because the trail has become eroded in places and has begun to spread out as new branches take hold.

The western end of this trail starts at a well-marked livestock gate that leaves the Unnamed Dirt Road. It immediately drops into a fun non-technical descent that skirts one of several reservoirs in this part of the USAFA. After the reservoir, the track starts to splinter as the main trail has eroded into a deep gully in places. This can be a fun segment that twists through open meadows and low scrub oak.

Approximately .25miles before the end, the trail crosses an open area and bears left. Approximately 150m later, the main track bears right, ending shortly at another cattle gate. After the cattle gate, turn hard left to join the AFA Falcon Trail Loop (from the Bomber) ride.

This horse gate is one of many, you should be standing on a dirt road staring at this gate, with a resevior far to left below you.  Open this gate (please leave it how you found it, closed), and then follow the singletrack
