Description

This trail can be accessed by heading west from the south parking lot. If you take it in this direction it's mostly uphill. Alternatively, you can link up to it from the Canyon Trail and get to ride this trail for nearly nine miles of mostly downhill!

This is a multi-use trail, shared with hikers and equestrians. The area is grazed by sheep and cattle, so look out for them as well.

This trail has some sections of doubletrack, but mostly fun, flowy singletrack through rolling terrain. To the west, it crosses into the Red Mountain Open Space (managed by Larimer County) and then continues north into the Big Hole Open Space in Wyoming (managed by the city of Cheyenne). It then loops down south again back into the Red Mountain Open Space.

The lower, 3 mile portion of the Cheyenne Rim trail was rerouted to make room for bisons - all a singletrack, a little bumpy (rocks, cattle tracks). 15mi — 2h 30m

Getting to the southern trailhead requires driving on eight miles of teeth-chattering washboard. The trail was good but fully exposed to wind/snow/rain/sun. Currently no charge to park. If you don't want to fight the crowds in Fort Collins this may be the place to ride but I'm not headed back unless the road improves. Mar 15, 2016
