This place is really cool. I don't know how anyone can give it less than 4 or 5 stars. Maybe when it gets super dry it gets too sandy or something, I'm not sure. I went to Ute Valley park and had a blast. At first it seems like the trail is really wide and boring, and it is.. until you start exploring some of the offshoot trails and stuff. There are plenty of rocks and technical climbs and descents to keep things interesting. It not endless, but it is right in the middle of town and it seems to be dry when there is still too much snow in the mountains outside the city. If it's not challenging enough for you, then ride a bike with less suspension and make it challenging.
