Both loops are good to go! Opened in July 2018.

Overview

This trail system had a soft open in July 2018. The existing trails are not very technical but certainly built to ride in a clockwise direction based on the banked switchbacks and climbing difficulty.

Need to Know

The new parking lot/trailhead is on the west side of the large vacant brown building on top of Floyd Hill.

Description

The trailhead is at nearly 8,000 feet in elevation making this an easy access, high elevation system which is okay to be done in the heat of summer. The trails are not directional but your best bet is to ride them clockwise (as mapped) starting with a mellow climb to the west from the lot on Lower Loop. You'll have some additional climbing in the shade as you get to the Upper Loop and a good amount of downhill to look forward to once you get to the ridge.

Future expansion includes a one-way downhill back to the parking lot and a full descent to the Peaks to Plains Trail in Clear Creek Canyon which connects to Centennial Cone via the Mayhem Gulch trailhead.

History & Background

This is a great step in the right direction for Clear Creek County Open Space. Hopefully, the first of many destination trailheads for Front Range mountain bikers.
