Some of the best rapid fire technical descending singletrack in the Front Range.

Matt Thoele

Overview

Description

Best ridden downhill. Start at the top of the Belcher Hill climb and ride West to East. Take your reflectors off and lower your seat post all the way down, you're going to need it!

From the start to the intersection with Sawmill Trail is rocky and rooty with water bars. Loose over hardpack with tight switchbacks and water bars. There are also some planked sections and a really nicely high-banked corner.

After the sawmill trail intersection to the first climb, the trail is more of the same. Rapid fire drop after drop. Keep your speed up and your wheels squared to the bars. Soil goes from loose over hard to hardpack soil.

From the first climb back to Blecher Hill the trail follows the pattern of rolling climb, descend, climb, descend. Some climbs are steep and loose.

Awesome downhill and flow. Rode as a loop. Forested and shady.

this should be a double black diamond and is a hard ride because of heavy erosion, not on par with the other black diamond ratings here (Betasso etc.). May 15, 2013
I can do this in my second season of mountain biking and every time, I'm like holy s*it I did that! Apr 20, 2017
