Description

Tenderfoot is part of the Steamboat Bike Park. The route is downhill only.

Tenderfoot is a great introduction to the gravity experience at Steamboat. It starts with some mellow sweeping turns and easy rolling berms on wider trail.

After the initial drop the trail travels through a large aspen grove and then breaks out into the open with huge views of the valley. After passing a optional boulder feature the route drops a bit more than brushes by Rawhide for a brief time before continuing down the mountain.

From here the route descends steadily with some fast sections followed by a series of switchbacks before crossing the main mountain road.

The next section is perhaps the most scenic. The trail narrows a bit and becomes more technical with tighter turns and more rocks in the tread. You'll also enjoy some large expanses of black slickrock and monolithic boulders along and above the route.

Continue down many downhill-style switchbacks through a heavily logged section until you bottom out at the Thunderhead Lift. For more gravity riding, continue down Wrangler Gulch to E-Z Rider or Bull Rider to the base of the mountain.
