Fast, fun, and a little simpler than other descents nearby, but often overlooked.

Like all lake Pueblo trails, the BLM does not allow trail augmentations. Trash and weed removal only. Please do not risk trail system closure to build features or alter trails.

Description

Similar to its more popular neighbor Free Ride but not to be forgotten. It is longer than Free Ride and faster. The upper portion has a decent length of small, loose shale that may scare off some as it sounds like riding on broken glass and can have a similar effect (higher tire pressure and tougher tires help).

The flow ends with a crossing of Rollercoaster—here you may turn left onto Rollercoaster or roll or drop a small ledge onto the lower more technical section. This is by no means that hard of tech but it can intimidate newer riders. With ladder stone ramps and a couple of jumps to finish it off, it's worth moving past Free Ride and knocking this one out also.

Like most Lake Pueblo trails, this is a two-way trail and quite a fun climb so keep your head up, especially when crossing Rollercoaster.
