Description

A moderate connector connector trail between Chimney Gulch and Apex (both good rides worth linking together) that mostly parallels the road.

The north end that drops down toward Windy Saddle has some technical rock moves and tight switchbacks.

Lookout Mountain Trail is a very close ride for me so I like to do this as a west to east ride starting at the Boettcher Mansion and descending down Chimney Creek Trail to the second crossing of The Lariat Trail. However, this trail is only from Windy Saddle to the Boettcher Mansion and isn't recognized on some maps. During the summer, this trail isn't the best choice as there are many of out of breath tourists that walk/hike west from Windy Saddle which means bikers have to pull over quite often. But if you can ride at a time without these hikers, it's a great workout as you don't get a single break from Windy Saddle to Colorow Road. Bikers and hikers; please stop and pick up as many cigarette butts and any other trash you might see along the way. Of all the trails I bike, this is the most littered and if everyone picked up a few things, there wouldn't be any trash whatsoever! Thanks! Nov 29, 2015
