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

Overview

Leashed dogs allowed.
Features: -none-

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!

The loop up top has large boulders or bushes at most turns preventing sufficient lean to go very fast.
