“A steep and very technical ATV trail with almost no one on it.”— Gregory Gehlhoff
Lake San Isabel is the starting point if done as an out-and-back at 8,500 feet. It tops out at 11,088 feet and gains that altitude very quickly after the first 2.5 miles. From that point on, it's various combinations of steep, tech, loam, roots, and flow. This makes for a great deal of hike-a-bike for mortal men. This is a very exciting descent with two rough loose climbs to interrupt the fun. This would be a four or five star trail if not for them.
In hindsight, this would make a great shuttle as the descent burns altitude so fast that the climb was not balanced. That said, it's worth the effort as it rides like a steeper, rougher doubletrack version of Greens Creek off of the Monarch Crest. This is a great chance to hone your line choice skills as they will be tested as well as your ability to hold speed and brake wisely.
