Need to Know

There are two portapotties at the trailhead but no running water. The main parking area holds 20-ish vehicles with an overflow spot on the grass for another 15-ish. There are additional parking lots across I-70 and down the road.

Description

As the newest addition to the Floyd Hill area, this downhill-only bike-optimized trail is a welcome addition to the Front Range area. Expect rocky outcroppings, rock berms, dirt berms, double rollers, and tabletops. Optional features include rock drops, rock gaps, and 4-6 foot hucks. All of the expert features on this trail are optional but taking the easy lines still classifies it as a black diamond.

Wish some of the transitions were a bit steeper, but this is still a really great track. Lots of lines. Some killer drops and sketchy tech.

Great trail, take your time to learn lines the first time down or you might bite off more than you can chew.
