Best trail in the front range, hands down!
There are so many options with adding miles if you wanted to do link ups, etc. The rock garden is hard going up I won't lie, but it is a fun challenge. You do get better as your lines get figured out. I have been riding this trail for years and have yet to clean it going up. Going down is much easier and way more fun. The rest of the trail is all single track with minimal techy sections near the top. How can a trail with a five mile grind up and a five mile bomb down on the most flow, clean single track not be the best trail in Colorado? I have ridden some trails that have had great reviews and cussed all the way up because whoever these folks are that think deep sandy, loose baby head rocks, non rideable sections are, "the best single track in Colorado", can kiss my a!@.
Hall Ranch is the real deal. It is challenging in spots, but overall, the trail is clean, fast and flowy.
