Review: I'm easy to please. Loved the ride. Took Blue Sky from Horsetooth Inlet Bay. Took Rimrock east for a while then had to get back to camp. Great quick ride. Beautiful views. Loved the technical aspect of Rimrock. Can't wait to get back and re-try some of the technical rocky climbs I failed on. Was fun coming back down.

Review: Finally had a chance to ride this all the way from Devil's Backbone to Horsetooth. Fun ride! Throw in Indian Summer for a little extra challenge! I didn't see any rattlers, but heard one buzzing in the bushes as I rode by. Be careful out there!

Review: The most important thing I can say about this trail is the watch for rattlesnakes. I came upon one that was kind of aggressive and did not want to leave the trail. There are also blind corners so these two factors will have you wanting to watch your speed. Mountains do provide some shade in morning. If you go to Indian Summer, you quickly realize how hot it is out in the open.

Review: I rode from coyote ridge to blue sky. It was a fantastic single track that wasn't too technical. If you get there early enough (before 8) you'll be able to enjoy the shade. It was too crowded when I went (5pm) but I did have to stop for some runners. Other wise, my new favorite ride.

Review: Nice flow trail with decent amount of climbing. Some blind corners. Views are great. Now it's connected with Lori, Horsetooth and Devils Backbone, so could be good epic ride with lots of miles. Hard to ride it when hot.

Review: Fast and fun. There are no serious climbs and the views are great. It also seems like the first trail to dry up after a rain or snow so I have never had bad conditions. The downfalls: Crowds mid-day, the difficult rock section near devils backbone, and 6$ parking.
