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

Overview

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.
Dogs: Leashed

Description

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).

these trails are fantastic Apr 19, 2014
Been following the website for the bike ride, where do I find the information on the trail run on Sunday? Mar 18, 2015
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
