Dry - Very fun ride. Great for kids too. Reasonable ascend and descends, can make them more challenging if you like by taking a different line. History

An easy and short singletrack loop with a few intermediate sections to play on.

Dogs: Leashed

Description [Suggest Changes]

On the Wildcat Mountain network of trails in the HRCA Backcountry Open Space, this loop is an overall easy and fast singletrack with a couple sections of intermediate features to build your skills.

This loop can be accessed by parking at the Rocky Heights Middle School and riding up the Douglas County East/West trail that parallels Monarch Blvd. Once you crest the top of Monarch, you'll see the gate and signage marking the entrance of the Wildcat Mountain Trail area.

This loop can also be accessed more directly by driving up Monarch Blvd from Rocky Heights Middle School, cresting the hill and turning left into a small parking area by the horse corral. From there, it's a short connector ride (0.2mi) to the gate leading into the Wildcat Mountain Trail area.

I think it might be worth mentioning in the description of this trail that the whole system is signed as private property for the use of HRCA members only. Apr 23, 2017
The description says leashed dogs but, like most of the HRCA back country trails, there are no dogs allowed on this loop. Plenty of people walk their dogs on them so I'm not sure anyone regulates it. I don't mind but someone might. There's a little symbol of a dog with a line through it in the trail map photo. Jun 27, 2017
