This trail travels all around the mule creek area and follows the creek up. There are several fun stream crossings and lots of fast singletrack coming back. The only negative is some overgrowth near the beginning for a quarter mile. Not technical but still a blast with some loose steep spots but ultimatley a gradual climb which makes for a quick cruiser back to your car. A great trail!

Review: I have never given a negative review to a trail before, but this one deserves it. Sure, it's pretty, but so is everything else in this area. No flow, trail built for hikers and I say leave it to them. Not a beginer trail, yet not fun enough for intermediate or advanced riders. Steep sections were very soft and what little tech they had was rough with no purpose. Add all the crap ( cow, horse and dog- some kind of record? ) and flies and you have a 1 star trail. I think this trail does not have as many bad reviews as it should, because after riding people forgot where they were. We still had a good time, but there are too many front range trails that are great to waste your time here. Oh yeah, poorly marked too! This is the first trail that I have ridden that I won't go back for another ride.

Similar Trail: Non, this is the worst trail on the front range.

Review: Nice trail if you only got a little bit of time. Take your girlfriend here who is new to biking - she wont get pissed off and will still talk to you after the ride. Be creative and make the most out of creek crossings- you will have fun!

Review: There is a patchwork of priavate property here that takes a lot of fun out of the trail. It's hard to keep a flow without trespassing. To get a long ride in requires a lot of uninteresting doubletrack around the private land. Unless you've got a local guide, you'll spend more time routefinding than riding. Better to go back through Woodland Park to Rampart Reservior (or even Lovell Gulch) or keep heading north to the Buffalo Creek area.

Review: There is no longer a problem with private property--now all public open access. Watch for dirtbikes as you get higher on the trail. You'll get a nice workout going up and tons of fun on your way down. As you get higher, you'll encounter the dirtbike areas and several other trails. I recommend forging straight ahead and turning around for the downhill when you get tired.

Review: A diverse and invigorating trail! Not a full day trip but a fun morning or afternoon outing. Also a good place to practice your stream crossing technique.
