Description

This trail starts at the parking lot on the south side of Rabbit Road at the end of the paved Santa Fe Rail Trail. It follows the tracks all the way past Eldorado to Highway 285 where the tracks cross the road.

It's a good fast training ride with very little climbing, and great for taking beginners on. There is really nothing technical on this ride, but the views can be great.

Did this out and back, great way to acclimatize. Bottom half or third is single trac along the RR but the whole thing is fast and fun 24mi
