Also known as Scout Trail, this gem has excellent views above Glenwood Springs and is best ridden downhill.

Overview

Description

In comparison to the adjacent mellow grades of Forest Hollow Trail, Boy Scout Trail (also known as "Scout Trail") is a rip-roaring downhill that will make the most use of your brakes. While some hardy folks do ride/push up from town, it's best enjoyed as the final (downhill) segment of a Forest Hollow and Scout Loop.

From the top of the trail, it begins to descend in a fast, steep and fairly technical manner. Many switchbacks and some sandy sections make for some hairy but fun moments. Exposure is common on this section so be careful. Also, watch your speed as hikers are abundant on this trail, often just around a blind corner.

snowy up top, not many hikers; drier on the steep parts; fun rocks to jump over, so fun! 2.5mi
