Trail Description
About this trail
This is one of the best trails in Eagle County, if not Colorado. The uphill is fairly easy with winding switch backs through the junipers, and a few downhill rollers during the climb to keep you cool. There are 2 pretty tough climbs that will get your lungs going near the top.

The downhill of Worlds is amazing. Fun and techy at the top with some rocks to navigate and some berms to pump. Once you reach the lower section the singletrack widens a little bit, and you will reach an alley where there are 6 foot high walls to do turns on....one of the most fun trail sections ive ever encountered.

You will have to hop over the fence at the end, and ride your bike to the RIGHT up the bike path back to the school. Cheers!

Review: Climbing up Abrams is some of the toughest/steepest short climbs. WG's isn't what you'd expect out of the name but definitely still fun. Some rutted out sections and washouts

Review: Sure, "World's Greatest" may be an exaggeration, but this is still an excellent route. Most will push a couple steep sections on the climb, but most of it is quite nice. Once on top, the views are excellent and the downhill will throw a bit of everything at you. It's not nicely groomed or maintained, much of it is loose or is merely a rut filled with babyheads, but the good spots are great and will put a smile on your face for sure.

Review: Clearly the name is tongue in cheek which makes this a fun trail. The climb isn't too bad and the descent is fast and steep in places. Clearly this trail sees a lot of riders - could it be the name? - so there are some washed out and loose sections. Check it out if you're in the area.

Review: There was certainly some fun sections on the way down, but all in all it was a disappointment! There are much better trails in Eagle county and this one should not be high on your list. As it was this was one of the last trails in the county that I have done and I am not sad to have left it for so long. It was so dry, dusty and rutted that the ground felt more like talc powder than solid. Unless you are trying to get some early season riding in before all of the choice trails up valley open or late season before everything gets snowed in don't bother! There is so much better out there!

Review: Great trail! The bottom section of World's Greatest can also be accessed by the fence you cross at the end, or the natual gas collection building just past the round-about if you want a short loop. For the road less traveled, take Abrams to Star Wars. Another great ride with less loose rock.
