Steeper grades and rocky terrain up the ante of fun twisty trail on the highest terrain of the park.

Mike Pritchard

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.

Getting forecast...

Took the trail east to west. Considering the condition of my legs by the time I came through Glenwood Springs, the climbs were tough but easily doable. Probably the best trail in this network. Apr 16, 2017
