A flowy descent with a few technical sections.

Overview

Features: -none-

Description

This can be ridden up and back, or can be connected with other trails in the area. The trail is flowy and fun, and most of the technical sections have a few different lines. Like most trails in the Pikes Peak region, the decomposed granite creates a loose over hard pack soil. Be careful! Hikers love this trail, you should too, though!

Maybe best to only ride down this trail from the forest service road. Going up was a lot of hike a bike. 7mi

St Mary's should be rated separately, for the top and for the bottom. Top, which I would never ride up, is steep with lots of difficult technical sections that would prove very tough for intermediate riders. The bottom section below the falls can be ridden very fast and has great "flow". I suggest riding up Gold Camp to the connector and hit the bottom section for a fun not too stressful day.
