Mountain Biking Blodgett

***   Add a review
#174 of 1,368 mountain bike trails in Colorado
#1,271 in the world

Trail starts as a fireroad and climbs. You can do an up and back to a water tower which is about 2 miles total. Not technical but good little quick climb. Another option is to take a left at double-track about 1/4 mile before the water tower. Take this up and stay to the right, you will be above the water tower. Keep going and you get to a point where you pickup your bike and carry it for about 10-20 minutes. You will eventually T a trail which run's parallel to the mountain (you can see it from where you parked). Go right and it is an awesome singletrack downhill with a lot of big rocks to pay attention to and some tight turns and fairly steep drops. You will eventually cross into Air Force Academy. At first major trail intersetion (double track) go right. You go downhill and then up. Open and close first gate. Keep heading south and you will hit second gate (I usually bunnyhop through the left side) and then into a subdivision. At road head left and then you will hit Woodmen, head right and you will hit your ride in about 3 minutes.

Getting there
From I-25 take Woodmen Rd exit (149) and head west. Cross bridge over train-tracks. At next light Woodmen turns to the right, follow it. Stay on Woodmen for several miles (5 or so) as it passes a school on the left. At stop sign continue straight as it winds through sub-divisions. Woodmen gains in altitute as it head west and then it starts to run parallel to the range. On your right you will see a fire-road with a gate, a small sign identifies it as Blodget Open Space. Pull in and park or park on the street.
