Mountain Biking Caribou Flats

A former 4x4 road that is reverting back to double and single track. This trail climbs steadily from the town of Eldora to the ghost town of Caribou. The trail is loose and very rocky for most of the climb. At the top, the views of the Indian Peaks are spectacular and riding around the ghost town and old mines makes for an interesting ride. The descent is fast and rocky.
