Leaves are lit up, gorgeous ride. Encountered some hikers and only 2 other bikers. Trail is in great shape. Most traffic was in/around Panoramic point

Clockwise. Hills were tough, not in shape yet. Will keep trying until I make the Loop

Rode to panorama point, ended up walking bikes more than we wanted to. Did not finish second half of ride. insanely rocky before panorama point
Oct 2, 2019
One of my favorite 'trail' rides. Period.
Sep 28, 2019
Not fun! Too many hikers at the top and the technical climb was too hard for us on hardtail bikes
Aug 25, 2019
With Zac. Rode it CCW which is way better!

I rode it CCW at the suggestion of other riders on the trail. I think I'd prefer to do it CW. Will try that next time.

A little of everything. Walking rocks downhill uphill
Apr 26, 2019
Some snow drifts in the shady hollows up high, have to pick your line to avoid the melt-mud
Apr 24, 2019
Deep snow on the back half.

awesome ride. Care could do this after a few rides

DO NOT DO THIS CLOCKWISE!! Terrible... whoever wrote the recommendation to go clockwise should be fired. Idiot lol

Got slightly lost twice had to take road at panorama and over shot the bail out then had to take road back

This was a beautiful ride! This is an up/down/up/down as Rx. The Racoon section is quite the climb.

Different character than Front Range trails, more high country. Moose and calf.
May 25, 2018
Linked it with Snowhare, which was a terrible idea.
Mule Deer is worth it on it's own!
Sep 10, 2017
This time a mother moose & her teenager crossed my path. Really not many people out for the weekend.
Jul 8, 2017
Difficult trail, Rocky and steep in many sections, but beautiful ride!
Jul 4, 2017
A good trail. Felt split between up and down. Great cross country trail, less of a downhill bomber. Great views and a challenging or two.
Jul 3, 2017
This is the quintessential Colorado ride. JK, don't ride here.
Jun 28, 2017
Harder than what described on MTB Project.
Jun 25, 2017
Went Clockwise from grouse, 1st half was uneventful and nice, 2nd had more technical decent and rock on some ups.
May 26, 2017
No technical terrain on the first uphill. Turned around at that point. Not a great trail from what we road.
Oct 28, 2016
Fall ride. Leaves were gone and it looked cold but turned out perfect!
Oct 8, 2016
Rode with two beginners. Snow on trail on some of the back side. Descents mostly dry.
Oct 5, 2016
Autumn light present, yet beginning to dim to Winter's chill
Oct 3, 2016
Rode it once in each direction, CCW then CW. I skipped the upper half of Raccoon in the CW and instead went to Pan Pt. Both ways awesome!
Sep 28, 2016
I was having so much fun I missed a turn & did a bonus segment
Sep 27, 2016
Great fall colors, saw a bull moose not far from the springs intersection.
Sep 4, 2016
Would have been a better down hill the opposite direction to
Sep 3, 2016
A fun trail, but it could use some work as erosion has taken it's tool. Definitely avoid the Raccoon Trail (uphill section from the campground).
Aug 7, 2016
Not too crowded for a Sunday morning.
Jul 24, 2016
I give it an intermediate/difficult because of the amount of climbing, which takes a toll. Some sections involve some obstacles.
Jun 25, 2016
Challenging climb with some fun single track decent. Lots of foot traffic.

Great ride - steep uphill at raccoon is washed out a bit so I had to hike the bike here, but other than that, wonderful ride and rewarding 5 mile d...
Feb 15, 2016
Good trail, would do it clockwise next time...more exciting downhill, meadow trail is fast but lame.
Nov 13, 2015
Mostly dry except for some snowy patches near panorama point and a few muddy sections in the meadows.
Oct 14, 2015
Perfect weather, perfect trail. Very few people. The wildflowers are going off right now and everything is super green
Oct 4, 2015
Beautiful country! Lots of weekend foot traffic, though.
Sep 26, 2015
Awesome Aspen groves in the fall. Quite a few hikers though. Did it clockwise and it was amazing. I feel like either direction is the same diffi...
Aug 9, 2015
Could not imagine going around this clockwise. Local guy suggested counter so I could enjoy the sweet singletrack downhill versus rocky switchbacks...
Jul 3, 2015
The climb is not too bad, some hiking here and there, but worth the amazeballs descent! Did the clockwise loop.
Jun 21, 2015
did the counter-clockwise loop. was more difficult going uphill, but flying down the meadow on the way back was so much fun
Jun 14, 2015
did the clockwise loop, took a shortcut on the racoon trail
Oct 23, 2014
Climb up Blue Grouse to Mule Deer up to Paramount Point to reach the amazing single track back down to Blue Grouse .
