This bench-cut trail is a fun as part of a larger loop.

Description

This trail is a well laid-out five miles of benchcut singletrack. It was built in conjunction with several professional trail crews and local volunteer talent. It connects to Beale Loop and Castle Rock Trail.

On the trail, you'll find a mixed variety of climbs and smooth. There are numerous switchbacks, rock pinches, and exposed areas. Although relatively short, the grades can be steep.

Throughout the trail are several saddles and gorgeous vistas. The trail dances around an old telegraph line in spots but don't worry about the broken glass insulators just off the trail.

Take your time and bring plenty of water, regardless of which season it is. You may encounter cows around the trail; a polite "excuse me" gets them to move if they're in the way.

*Upon leaving Beale Loop, the trail tightens quite a bit. It grazes the hillside where you cross and uses a very small piece of aborted doubletrack. Off to the right will be a sweeping turn up into tight singletrack again. Enjoy.
