Update

A fast and technical downhill from Caribou to Eldora.

Alan Doak

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.

Super fun! Lots of baby head rocks but trail is wide enough for stressless maneuvering about them. 5.3mi

I think lots of folks will be riding this up from Ned rather than just down to Eldora. Very loose/rocky and not a very enjoyable climb... Aug 5, 2014


Very loose and rocky. We went down it and glad we didn't have to climb it. Jul 13, 2015
