Description

The trail runs around the edge of the Cathedral Pines subdivision. Some areas are in the trees, but a lot more of it is open after the Black Forest fire. This trail features some nice flowing roller-coaster rides on the north side. The trail skirts the edge of some homes/lots. Either direction (CW or CCW) results in a nice downhill with gradual climbs back out.

Top of the trail with Pikes Peak off in the distance. Good down hill start of the trail.

Trails merge here. You'll see a metal bench seat. If looking to ride the big Pikes Peak loop stay right of the bench and head East.

A nice easy ride with ups and downs - green is well rated. A chance for fitness. A few short closures for forest service maintenance at the moment. 4.9mi — 0h 39m
