Great rolling singletrack with tons of options for short and long loop rides.

Overview [Suggest Changes]

The Town of Castle Rock recently connected the various sections of this trail into a ten mile loop. There are sign posts at most intersections so it's easy to ride the whole trail as one big loop or bypass sections for a shorter ride. There's nothing too technical, but some tight, loose turns, a few switchbacks, and a couple of short climbs make for an excellent after work ride right in the middle of town.
Features: -none- [Add/Remove]
Dogs: Leashed

Description [Suggest Changes]

Park at the Coachline Road trailhead and ride the big loop clockwise. Just ride through the signposts in reverse alphabetical order (O - A). Be prepared for an awesome roller coaster of a ride, but do be careful and keep your speed in check as you'll likely encounter many other trail users (and some blind corners).

My first time riding here and it was a lot of fun. Just wanted others to be warned that it is pretty confusing though with all the trails and bypasses. I figured I would just do as stated above and "Just ride through the signposts in reverse alphabetical order (O - A)." I looked at the map in the Coachline Road trailhead parking lot and planned to ride the big loop clockwise. From the map I could see the letter designations but when you get out on the trail the trail markers all have different names. "East Loop" "Native Legend" "Avery" "Bison" and endless "Bypasses". I was able to kinda of work out that as long as I kept going left (and avoid anything that looked like it just went to a neighborhood) and with the occasional consult of the MTB Project app I could do the entire loop, but I still missed some of the trail. I still don't know exactly what I did so I am not the one to update the descriptions here. I'll definitely go back and if I get it figured out before someone else updates this I will. But for others be warned but go anyway and have fun, you can't really get lost unless you absolutely directionally challenged. Mar 8, 2018
Seems like it could be a fun trail, but not at 9 a.m. on a Saturday - way too crowded. Tons of bikes riding both directions, runners with their earbuds in and one woman standing in the middle of the trail talking on her phone made it a major bummer. This trail really needs to be one-way traffic. Set it up for alternating directions like M, W, F counter clockwise T, Thurs, Sat, Sun clockwise or something. There was just way too much two-way traffic to be enjoyable. Will have to head back late evening sometime to try again I guess. Apr 28, 2018
Rode this last night. Fun ride. Great place to work on your endurance and interval training. Technically its very easy. No drop offs or tech climbs. Just be cautious of corners. Many are blind and you won't see hikers or other bikers until you are right on them. The area is exposed, the sun and wind can be tough on some parts. I would go early am or late evening to avoid heavy traffic. Jun 2, 2018
