Description

This utilizes a newer section of trail and replaces a 1.7-mile section of trail that runs through some unmaintained private land that drops into a wash that has lots of "baby head" sized rocks.

This trail is singletrack heaven and has some awesome flow sections and awesome views. It is mostly uphill all the way to Castle Rock if you are coming from Beale Loop or Rattler Trail. Just before you get to Castle Rock (a large rock that looks like a castle) the trail comes to a "T" intersection.

There is another bench straight ahead. Make a right and it's a 0.6-mile out-and-back to Castle Rock. Make a left and you descend down Badger Trail. One of the best descents in the area! There is some mild exposure on this trail and it is used in conjunction with other surrounding trails to make some awesome enduro loops.

You can also make the 3.2 mile, 1,000 foot climb up Badger Trail and descend Castle Rock Trail. This trail is nicely ridden in either direction.
