Trail shared by Jeff Ruhle with improvements by T Mann

Some great singletrack that winds through Aspen and pine forests with one steep hike-a-bike.

The trail can also be easily accessed from the north side, by Lake Granby off Co Rd 6.

Description

Starting from the meadow, this trail winds up and quickly comes to a very steep section. Bike up as far as you can, but this will be a hike-a-bike for most. Once you get to the top after this short but steep section, there is some killer singletrack that winds its way back down into the Doe Creek drainage.

As you start going back uphill, keep an eye out on the right (east) side for an old pickup that must have been left out there by a farmer 30 years ago. Once you get to the top, you'll a relatively steep descent where you can take optional switchbacks if you want to avoid burning out your brakes. It quickly flattens out and becomes some great, flowy singletrack through the forest and a beautiful meadow. After the meadow, it's a quick stretch until you come out at the Doe Creek trailhead right on the edge of Lake Granby. If you're hot, go take a dip.

We started from the north end by Lake Granby. The singletrack portions were quite good. However the meadow portion had a lot of standing water. 3.9mi — 0h 34m

Nice easy ride with good flow from top down to lake. Good out and back from lake. Little deadfall but not to bad.
