Description

This descent is a mile of hike-a-bike down once the trail enters Stanley Canyon.

The Stanley Canyon Trail (707) begins off of Schubarth Road (FS 307). The first mile gently descends to access Stanley Reservoir. It meets with the Stanley Rim Trail (722), and Trail 721 at the reservoir. These are often ridden in a loop.

The Stanley Canyon Trail continues down to AFA property, and a half a mile past the reservoir it becomes hike-a-bike between boulders and steep grade. It is a means to descend to AFA property.

Was hoping to use this to connect to Rampart Reservoir unfortunately, this is a challenging and rocky/boulder filled trail. Climbs a lot too. On...

I have hiked this trail many times and love doing that. Because of this, I can say with all conviction that it is no good for mountain biking.

This is a great hiking trail, but would be abysmal for riding. From Stanley Reservoir to the waterfall is rideable. From there on you will hike a bike for much of the trail. There's also an awful lot of hikers on that trail at any time so you'd end up stopping a lot. Winter riding is no good. It's snowy and icy and not in a good fat bike way. I recommend deleting this trail from the database. Jan 8, 2017


I tried coming down this trail from Stanley Reservoir (I was trying to make a loop from Monument to Woodland Park via Mt Herman, and then back via Rampart Reservoir and Falcon trail). According to my Strava data there was a 1.1 mile stretch that took 40 minutes and dropped 1200'. That stretch was 100% non-ridable - I don't care how good your are. To call it hike-a-bike wouldn't do it justice. Jun 24, 2017
