A clockwise loop of Grazing Elk Trail
Aug 17, 2019 near Ken Caryl, CO
I rode the Coyote Song Trail, with awesome red rock formations, and some sweet flowing downhill. The trail was closed for the final portion, so I rode the rest of the way on prairie falcon.

Steep but easy uphill start. Singletrack 3 mile loop with some gravel. Pretty ride & nice for a quick loop. Enough uphill for me to get a nice sweat.
