Trail Description
About this trail
Three connected trails. Camp Beale is a loop the other 2 are out and backs. Camp Beale Trail is a 3.2 mile loop with a 500' max elv. gain. Fairly easy trail, but has it's rough spots. This trail connects to Castle Rock Tr. and Monolith Gardens via the underpass. Badger Trail is a 3.4 mile 1100' climb up countless switchbacks, and connects to Castle Rock Tr. Technicaly intermediate. Castle Rock Tr. is the 5 mile connector trail for Badger, and Camp Beale, and continues out to Castle Rock. The section from Badger to Castle Rock gets a lot of traffic, but the section between Badger and Camp Beale gets little. Is actually a sweet intermediate level trail. Whole system can be done as a loop if you want to do a pavement ride on Rt 93, (has wide shoulders, but crossing Rt 93 should only be attempted by daredevils, and those who have already sired the next generation of mountain bikers)

Review: Nice trail, pretty flowy. Be sure to know on which trailhead you parked and to get a map. On the trail you will see signs stating TH (Trailhead) but they don't specify which trailhead. I was lost about an hour trying to find the right trailhead. Nice scenery, great open spaces.

Review: Fun trail system.
I rode the Monolith Gardens Loops and had a blast. The lower loops are pretty smooth ST with some rocks thrown in for fun.
The higher up you go, the rockier it gets. I think this will smooth out as the area gets more traffic.
Kudos to the trail builders for putting together some well thought out trails.

Review: Very nice trail system. There are many different variations. Badger can be done as an out n back and is a very good climb, 1,300 feet in 3.6 miles. Very fun and fast descent on a narrow trail.
