Trail shared by Brian Smith

A rugged but fun trail - some of the best singletrack in the park!

Brian Smith

Features Fall Colors · Views · Wildlife

No dogs permitted anywhere in Cheyenne Mountain State Park.

Description

This is one of the few true singletrack trails in the park. It's very technical and twisty but a lot of fun, it was built by Medicine Wheel Trail Advocates (local MTB club) when the park was created.

There's no exposure, just lots of rocky, rugged terrain. It's very pretty as it winds through the woods and meadows.

It can be used in either direction as part of the Blackmer Loop.
