Features -none-

R-Road is closed to mountain biking at the Union Creek terminus. A-Road is not accessible at all. This route is essentially worthless until Copper Mountain finishes the new Tucker Mountain ski lift project.

Overview

A simple out-and-back up the service road system at Copper Mountain Ski Resort, this non-technial ride will climb nearly 2,000' during a great workout to reach some nice views at the top! On the way down, retrace your route or venture off onto many of the singletrack options.

Description

This out-and-back ride climbs to the top of the Rendezvous Lift for great views of Tucker Mountain, Pacific Peak, and the rest of the 10-Mile Range. Sheltered picnic tables at the top make for a great lunch break. The ride down is fast and has numerous options for entering Copper Mountain's singletrack system.

The out-and-back starts at the Union Creek Village at the access gate, but you could also start in the Center Village by following the Colorado Trail up to the intersection with the A-Road.

Grind uphill past the Woodward Camp snow hill. Watch for the second fork in the road which will be the R-Road. Each of the two forks has a sign on the righthand option that says something to mountain bikers that those are dead end trails. This is true.

At the second fork, which is only marked by the dead end sign and no reference to R-Road, turn right and start a long climb past the top of the Union Creek Lift. Take your first left and head towards the base of the Sierra and Rendezvous lifts. Stay left as you pass the bottom of the Sierra lift to follow the Rendezvous Lift Access Road for one final grind to the top.

The Elk Alley trail can be entered at multiple points on the return descent if you want to sample some singletrack.
