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.

Most of numerous gates in the Soapstone Area are now equipped with cattle guards, so you don't need to stop.

About 90% rideable. Some muddy spots and lingering snow drifts that required some walking. 21mi — 2h 22m

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

Did the Cheyenne Ridge - Canyons - Mahagony - Pronghorn Loop. A bit choppy in places but otherwise in great shape! 21.8mi
