Nothing but sweet downhill single track through the woods. It still has great views though. A great early morning ride to start your day. At the bottom of moonstone there are some sweet switchback banked turns. If you bike up to the trailhead from town it is a long climb. There isn't much of parking at the trailhead except a dirt turnaroud across the street. Twenty to thirty minute ride.

Review: Loved this ride! Very challenging for a flat lander like myself, had to stop and catch my breath a few times, but the trails are world class and the other cyclists are very courteous!

Review: Awesome climb from town up moonstone with a dedicated downhill section with steep banked turns and wooden bridges. Thank you town of Breck for an awesome trail system.

Similar Trail: Chutes in Colorado Springs (but Moonstone is better)

Review: Its an alright trail. Easy to use thanks to the free public bus. The only part I hate is the rocks like someone forgot to remove them and just left them. Also its not 5 miles and takes only about 10 minutes to get down

Review: Great singletrack climb if you start in town and climb up Barney Ford from the initial entrance off of Baldy Rd.!!! Can be used to continue on to Sally Barber Mine and the French Gulch riding areas. Thank you town of Breckenridge for all the work done in signage and trail construction/maintenance in Summit County!!!

Review: A really sweet trail especially at the top and very bottom. Watch out for trees! Not technical but sometimes bumpy and rooty but mainly just smooth, fast, singletrack.

Similar Trail: Rampart Reservoir although longer similar.

Review: Simply put, an awesome trail. Short but sweet. Great singletrack and one of my favorite rides in Colorado.
