Mountain Biking Brockover Mesa - Corncob Loop

*****   Add a review
#430 of 1,368 mountain bike trails in Colorado
#4,263 in the world

The "corncob Loop" is a 12.45 mile loop with 1,930 feet of total climbing
over the entire route. That elevation is generally achieved through very
gradual, steady uphill sections that you hardly will notice. But you are
rewarded with many miles of gradually descending downhill. All in all, a
very fun and scenic trail that gets you to the further west areas of the
Brockover Mesa / Turkey Springs mountain bike network of trails. See
additional trail network info at
