A "pipeline" between dense trees from the Rollins Pass area to Eldora.

Description

If this trail was better maintained, it'd be awesome...but, for now, it's just OK.

If coming from Rollins Pass (aka Corona Pass) just above The Needle, the initial descent is a moto-blasted disaster. Clearly moto's ride here a lot and have churned up baby heads, etc. So you'll either be hike-a-biking, or you'll be riding your brakes.

Once you've navigated the choss field, continue east on a doubletrack that eventually connects to Pipeline. From its outset, the trail is in open fields with expansive views of the Indian Peaks to the north. The intermittent views of South Arapahoe are especially stunning.

After bombing this first section, the rest of the trail is almost all the same: extremely tight trees, winding, and fast. Be sure to wear gloves on this trail, otherwise the trees will try to take your knuckles off.

If you're feeling altruistic, bring a folding saw and get some of that wood out of the way!

The finale of this trail is full of loose rocks and is a steep climb. Once you've crested this lung buster, the trail ends at the ski resort property boundary (there may be a use trail that continues on but this is private property and bikes are not allowed). Just turn around and rip back down this one!
