“Steep, strenuous and sun exposed.”— Matt Thoele
The portion of Longhorn Trail (0.9 miles) between Shorthorn Trail and Whippletree Trail is now designated single direction (west to east/downhill) only, mountain bike only. This section is steep and raw. Very fun for intermediate to advanced riders.
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.
Most people exit on Whippletree Trail but for a few extra feet of climbing you can catch a fast decent down Belcher Hill.
There are some amazing views of the Colorado front range.
