“This route follows the Beaver Meadows XC Course for a fast loop around some must see Colorado forest”— Bennett Stucky
Here you'll find a creek crossing with several options for crossing. Once past the creek, stay to the right and ascend Pearl Creek. You'll come to a large rock face in the middle of the hill which used to be part of a DH race course (check out this video of the drop).
Stay left here and follow the Pearl Creek singletrack. At the time of this writing, there are blue ribbons on trees marking the trail. Pearl Creek alternates between single and doubletrack and road access. Here is where you merge with Frontier. Stay to the right on Frontier and enjoy the forest.
You'll be traveling between alternating forest and exposed clearings. Keep an eye on the weather. Make some noise to increase your fun level and to alert any wildlife that may also be having fun. This section of the course takes you on some very fun, fast, and flowy singletrack. Once you get to the stream crossing you have just a short bit of fast trail before the mid-course climb up Powderhorn.
Ascend Powderhorn until Cabin Creek. Turn right and ascend Cabin Creek. Make a left on Trappers. From here you have only a bit more uphill until a sweet fast rocky descent. After enjoying the wide rocky switchbacks continue straight passed Renegade. Make the next left available to Trappers and scoot down for another lap or the beers in your car.
