Steep, strenuous and sun exposed.

Description

This trail has some great technical features. The Shorthorn Trail cutoff is recommended as it has some great, fast technical sections. If you stay on Longhorn instead of the cutoff, it's very steep. It reminds me of biking down a steep water slide.

The part between Maverick and Shorthorn Trail is very fun. It's fast, with a lot of roots and rock drops with good corners. The final stretch between Shorthorn and Belcher hill has a couple of short steep climbs and then one last loose rocky descent with a couple of switchbacks.

There are some amazing views of the Colorado front range.
