“A fairly easy trail with loads of optional drops - a drop lovers dream!”
— Lee Clark
With all major features having bypasses, kids will enjoy this trail as much as grown-ups.
The Blue River Parkway Trail System is susceptible to damage when wet, don't ride wet trails! Urban Trail CO

Stonewall is located at the northern end of the trail system and is accessed from the Bridger
Trail by crossing over Blue River Road. At the start of the trail, you'll notice another trail marked "Do Not Enter," this is the end of the one-way Heretic
Trail. Just past here, the loop portion of Stonewall gets started.
It can be ridden in either direction. But if you like to hit drops, turn up the hill to the right to travel counter-clockwise (as mapped). There is a nice stretch of mild tech and flowing hardpack during the first half of the trail. This easier section allows riders to get warmed up for what's to come.
The largest drop on the trail is reached at about the halfway mark. As with all intermediate/advanced features on Stonewall, there is a bypass for beginners or anyone just not "feeling it" that day.
Sight lines are great throughout the trail, and signage is well placed for navigating. On the northside, there is a nice view as the trail hugs the edge of a limestone outcropping on the way back down.
