Description

Trail 409 is another longer ride that opens up early in the riding season. About 1 1/2 miles of the trail are extremely rocky and technical, so be prepared to walk some. From town, ride south to Cement Creek Road. Continue up Cement Creek Road to Walrod Gulch Road, turn left and ride up, passing one left spur, until you arrive at Trail #418, the Walrod Cutoff Trail, and turn left onto it.

After climbing up #412 from Walrod, you'll come to a sign that points right to #409. Take it. Continue climbing steadily for a short distance, then climb and descend very steeply to avoid private property. Next, roll along through the aspens with a few uphills and rock gardens until you end up down in the Farris Creek drainage.

Turn left and climb up out of Farris Creek on an old road and drop down to Brush Creek Road. (Or turn right and ride either Farris Creek or 402 for more singletrack) Turn left and ride out to Hwy 135. Left here takes you six miles back to Cement Creek Road, right goes two miles back to town.

Since the new re-routes and trail work that was completed in 2014, it also now makes a great but challenging uphill ride from brush creek road up to Point Lookout.

This is a fun trail, but is pretty technical and is a lot more work than it looks on paper. Sep 7, 2013
