Trail Description
About this trail
The trail basically parallels the road into Cheyenne Canyon park. The ride is a little more than
3.5 miles one way and climbs about 600-700 feet. At the top, you can either jump onto Gold
Camp Road or continue to the paved road near Helen Hunt Falls. The trail has alot of gravel and
makes for a difficult climb (and descent as well). Lots of switchbacks, etc. Use this trail to make
a great loop with The Chutes.

Review: I wouldn't ride this trail uphill. It's loads of fun going down - quite floaty on the loose gravel sections!

Review: Great trail that isn't too steep or technical but does have some loose sections. Awesome views the entire time. Starting from the bottom is a hard climb, hike a bike in some places. Some hikers but not as many as Barr trail. Has a few rocky parts but mostly loose singletrack and tight turns.

Review: The switchbacks can be a fun challenge (steep and deep loose scree), and below the switchbacks the trail gets pretty fast and playful. Just be careful not to kill any hikers because there are lots of them. Beautiful trail and area of course.

Review: It's short, steep, and loose but a decent connector trail if you're trying to put together a loop. Very difficult going up.

Review: Great trail. Over all it's a bit work getting up but it's worth it because you get the views and great downhill

Review: I think this trail has a ton of potential but needs rerouting. It just doesn't capture the DH potential of Cheyenne Canyon.

Review: There are some good views off of this trail, but the deep, loose gravel keeps it from being all that much fun to ride. Sure, it's singletrack and it functions as a great connector, but it's nothing special.

Review: Going uphill at lower section can be annoying - no traction because grade is steep and soil is like kitty litter. Likewise going downhill is loose and can become dangerous very quickly, but fun. Dont go on weekends there are too many hikers.

Review: Decided to ride Lower/Middle Columbine up to a the side trail that cuts out to Gold Camp just before Tunnel #1. Not a bad a climb although some of the gravel and incline gassed us out quick. Def more fun going downhill on this trail I'm sure. Headed over to ride the Chutes back to parking. Not a bad little ride.

Similar Trail: Palmer Trail, Falcon, Palmer Park, Chutes, Just about anything in Cheyenne Canyon really.

Review: Loose and gravelly at times but really fun/fast and if you like tokyo drifting the corners, it is a WHOLE lot of fun. Best after a rain or snow. Watch for uphill traffic!
