Description

This loop starts and ends in the parking lot for the Bald Mountain Scenic Area off of Sunshine Canyon Drive which is a well-marked trailhead on your left if you are coming from Boulder.

The singletrack rises gently away from the parking lot and picnic area up to the open summit of Bald Mountain. The trail begins through a thinly spaced ponderosa pine forest.

After approximately 0.2 miles, there is a split in the trail that begins the loop. Choose either direction and you'll return to that same point in about a mile. The mellow trail winds around as you approach the summit and views open up to the Great Plains below to the east, and the Continental Divide looming above you to the west. Continue along your chosen direction until you return to the parking lot/trailhead.

Super easy, lapped the bottom section above the switch back. Either CW or CCW is fun. Better hiking trail but still fun to lap with a view 1mi
