“An excellent intro to singletrack. My kids and friends all started here.”— Lance Buck
Family Friendly A great singletrack introduction for the little ones!
From here, it is a nice long downhill (ever so gently) along the old railroad bed. You'll ride along Trout Creek as the trail winds past open pine forest.
At the 3.5 mile mark the trail pops out at the end of Columbine Trail (a road), ride a stone's throw down the street and look for the trail dropping off the left side of the road. This is my favorite part, down by a beautiful stream.
Cross a footbridge and follow the path up over a short but steep hill and back along the highway to your car.
