A challenging, unidirectional descent from Wildridge.

John McDade


This trail is for descending only and is not recommended for beginner riders.


Beautiful views of Avon and Beaver Creek but no time to look at them as the trail twists and steeply descends towards Avon Singletree Connector (ASC). Enormous in-sloped berms perfectly built toss riders from corner to corner. Lee's Way Down ends on the Avon Singletree Connector (ASC). This is the perfect conclusion to a long climb up to Wildridge.

Parking available on the end of Nottingham Rd. Please do not park in the turn around as this will not allow large trucks to make deliveries.

Getting forecast...

This trail is an absolute blast, no doubt! But I must disagree that it meets the standard of a black trail based on the criteria of this site. While I wouldn't take just any beginner down the trail, I certainly would recommend it to newer bikers. There are a few technical drops, but the entire trail was very rollable. May 4, 2015

For anyone who wants to see the best of Eagle County, look no further than Lee's Way in Avon! I live at the top of this trail and do it about once a week. I was lucky enough to be one of the first riders of this trek the night it opened last summer. (Being on a trail crew does have its perks!!) There is no shortage of views, fun, or excitement on this descent. If you have confidence on a bike, you can do this trail. Keep things rolling and you will be greatly rewarded! There are a few narrow spots that keep you on your toes right in the middle of the ride. Also, beware at the bottom there are some rocks that you need to keep your eye on, but everything can be rolled through safely. My favorite parts include the opportunities to catch a little air on the top, a thrilling bottom-drop-out turn in the middle and corkscrew leaners at the bottom. When you see the end, don't stop there. Cross the Avon Connector to BLT for much of the same action at a more intermediate level. I LOVE LOVE LOVE living in the West Avon Preserve! Jul 27, 2015

Very much agree... super fun trail...but for the sake of consistant trail ratings...this would be a blue anywhere else as there are no mandatory drops or gaps...all "jumps" are table tops that can simply be rolled. This trail becomes more challenging the faster you go :) Oct 19, 2015
