The trail starts out in a meadow, followed quickly by a fairly easy climb up the side of the mesa with some switchbacks. Once at the top of the mesa, there is a loop which can be ridden either direction. Riding it twice and then descending will make it a 5 mile total ride.
The trail is fast, slightly rocky single track with no technical obstacles. There is one switchback with exposure on the side, and it sneaks up on you when riding counter-clockwise.
The city of Castle Rock received a grant to expand the trail system and they hope to add some more technical terrain at the top and maybe a trials course, so stay tuned.
This trail is typically open year-round, weather permitting.
Watch for rattlesnakes! I saw two on my first ride there.
