The main artery through the Marshall Mesa trail system - intermediate riding with a few tough bits.

Mike Ahnemann

Overview

Dogs: Leashed

Description

The trail is a smooth gravel at first as you start out from the large trailhead. After a short warmup on a gentle climb, you'll reach the Community Ditch (irrigation canal). You could take the Community Ditch trail to the left to get to Rte. 93 and the eastern trail system, but Doudy Draw continues across the bridge.

The trail turns to singletrack after the bridge, and begins to climb somewhat steeply. Less advanced riders will be challenged by medium sized rocks scattered across the trail on this section, but stick with it - things mellow out in less than a mile.

At the top of the climb, you'll reach an intersection where you'd stay right to link up with the Spring Brook Loop North and South. Stay left to follow the rest of Doudy Draw. This last part of Doudy Draw is the most challenging section of trail in the entire system. It's definitely rideable, but quite steep as it climbs up to the Flatirons Vista.

Once you get to the top of the ridge, follow the trail north and take in the great views out over the trails you've just ridden. The trail ends at a gate to linkup with the Flatirons Vista North and South trails.
