Family Friendly Well-maintained singletrack would make this a great ride for an intermediate/beginner or younger rider.

Overview

This loop is a link up of a few segments of trail. It has a short, fast (especially with a tail wind) section of road riding followed by some fun, off-the-beaten-path riding on an open space corridor.

Description

Start at the Boulder Valley Ranch trailhead. Ride north on the Left Hand trail to the picnic shelter. Then go east on the singletrack which intersects with Neva Road. Ride Neva to Golf Club Drive and head south.

Across from Nicklaus Ct., jump on the grassy North Rim trail heading east. Follow this trail between fences and up a short but steep hill onto Sage. From here, the trail intersects the Eagle trail and the choices of where to go abound.

We rode up the grinder hill on the Boulder Valley Ranch trail. Enjoy.
