A short lollipop with some technical climbing and fast, rocky descents.

Description

Climb northeast out of the parking area on a short, steep trail with some fun little rock gardens until you hit the Little Thompson Overlook Trail split at about 1/2 mile. Turn right across the service road. (The service road offers a gentler option for the climb and descent for beginner riders.)

Climb another 1/2 mile on varying smooth and rocky singletrack. The preferred direction is generally to cruise clockwise on the loop. The trail levels out a bit on top of the mesa and offers views of the Front Range, Continental Divide, and Eastern Plains. There is a brief section on a service road with views of Meeker, Longs, and the Twin Sisters. Veer off the road and continue across the mesa.

At its furthest southeast point, the trail turns sharply back northwest. This section cruises through some heavier brush and short technical bits back to the beginning of the loop. Head back down the way you came (super fun, fast descent) or around the loop again if you're feeling good!

A nice little ride. Can be a be a bit crowded on weekends until you reach the the actual loop, but the crowds thin considerably after that. Hikers are friendly, and good about stepping out of the way. Nice intermediate track that is great for conditioning or honing skills. A little something for everybody, and it's a quick ride if you're running short on time. Due to it's short length, beginners may find it to be a less daunting foray into the world of mountain biking than some longer trails. Jul 9, 2018
