Description

Best accessed from the Sunset West area, you can also choose to park along Weld County Road 6 near the start. There's a nice new sign at the start informing users that this trail was just recently built and to follow all the trail etiquette rules.

Wind uphill from the start to the first junction and keep right to start the ascent up the easier track. Follow this as it makes nice easy switchbacks up to the top of the hill. There's a junction at the top which joins County Road 5, but stick to the farthest right path and you'll start the second half of the loop down what the builds have deemed to be the "Blue Run".

Ascend down and enjoy the natural rolling nature that's been built up for plenty of air opportunities! The turns are also nicely banked, so feel free to open up the speeds as much as you're comfortable with. There's not a ton of terrain here, but what is there has been well worked into the equation - including little micro gullies and undulating terrain.

The laps are on the shorter side, so feel free to do a few laps to hone your ride!
