Description

This trail is named in reference to Glenwood Springs' original name, Defiance. The trail climbs to the highest point in the system, with steep climbing and narrow, sometimes rocky trails creating some of the more challenging moments in the park. The trail rides well in both directions and can be used as part of a loop or figure 8 loop with all of the other nearby trails.

Access is from the Wulfsohn Trail - South TH segment and from the vicinty of the Stevie Bob Trail/Wulfsohn Trail - North TH.

The singletrack trails in Wulfsohn Mountain Park have been created and maintained by Two Rivers Trails with support from RFOV.

Challenging and fun, but the abundance of loose rock makes the climbs tough, and the decents into loose curves pretty sketch. (Noob's perspective tho) 1.4mi
