A great longer ride option to hit all the best loops in the area.

Overview

This loop option was great especially if you like a long ride with great views and a combination of flow and technical riding. This route covers most of the trails around the beginning of the Kokopelli Loops, sandwiched between the Colorado River and I-70. It starts with easier trails and ends with more difficult trails. There are numerous cut-offs, bailouts, and alternates along the route. I didn’t see very many riders, especially for a weekend.

Description

Park at the Kokopelli trailhead on Hawkeye Road, off the Loma exit of I-70. This ride has almost everything because you’ll be riding most everything! Read the individual trail descriptions that make up this ride so you know what to expect.

From the parking lot, ride up the dirt road and down to Rustler's Loop and ride CCW. Ride back up the dirt road 1,000 feet to Wranglers Loop on the left (ride east to west on Wranglers). Ride Kokopelli/Mary's Loop south to Horsethief Bench Loop and ride it CW.

Ride Kokopelli/Mary's Loop northwest to Steve's Loop and ride it CW. Ride Kokopelli/Mary's Loop north to Lion's Loop (ride west). Ride Lion's Loop all the way to the north end of Troy Built.

Ride Troy Built all the way until it intersects with Mack Ridge. Ride Mack Ridge east until you reach the intersection of a parking area, Mary's Loop, and Moore Fun. Ride Mary’s to Kokopelli/Mary’s back to the parking lot.

If you still have water, energy, and time, take Moore Fun back to the parking lot to bolster your “dirt cred”. If you’re completely cooked, drop down to Hawkeye Road and ride it back to the parking lot.

I only had one day to ride and this ride had it all: views, miles, flow and some technical. I rode a 29+ hardtail which performed well. Jun 22, 2018
