The most popular Hall Ranch trail - home of the well-known "Rock Garden" section.

Mike Ahnemann

Overview

Dogs: No Dogs

Description

This is the first section of trail leading up from the main Hall Ranch parking lot. It's a steady climb all the way up to the junction with the Antelope trail.

This trail includes a 1/2 mile Rock Garden that can challenge all but the most advanced mountain bikers. It's a consistent climb with big moves up and over rock faces and features. It's rideable by advanced riders even without trials skills, but you'll work for it!

Less experienced riders can choose to park at the other smaller trailhead and ride the intermediate (but still fun singletrack) Antelope trail up to the same spot.

Mostly Dry - Hall Ranch is good to go, and might be the best trail on the front range.

Is this trail directional? or can you ride this downhill? Jan 15, 2015
You can ride it either direction. It's tough though. Much to tough for my noob self. :-( Feb 17, 2016
