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

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.

Some stuff was too technical but I surprised myself on what I was able to do. The planks were scary but I did it! 2.2mi

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
