Description

From the ruins of the ghost town of Caribou, head up a bit further and turn south. After a pleasant ride through meadows and forest, the trail drops steeply down a fun and fast technical trail to the town of Eldora. You'll pass a pond (look for moose) and have some great views of Eldora and the Indian Peaks on the way.

The ride is an OHV road that is closed to motorized vehicles on both ends and is reverting a bit back to more of a trail.

Also known as Forest Road 505.

Mostly 4x4 road. Great views, but not a mtb trail.

Eldora signage indicates OHV is allowed and Eldora gate was open 8-12-17. Encountered motos up high and a climbing side-by-side on the loose rocky descent. It's a jackhammer on a 26" hardtail without padded shorts. Aug 14, 2017
The climb up to the Caribou ruins from Nederland is nice. You'll want a double-boinger for the descent into Eldora. Aug 29, 2017
a tough climb and accesses the not so "secret trail" Jan 13, 2018
