#316 of 1,354 mountain bike trails in Colorado
The American Eagle lift give you access to a handful of singletrack trails on the ski mountain. Each top to bottom trail drops about 1400 feet as they zig-zag down the mountain. The trails simply run across the ski hill until they get into the trees where switchback, sending you back across the ski run until you enter the trees, where you find the next switchback. The trail bed is mostly dirt, with a occasional rocks and water bars thrown in. The technical challenge is pretty low. There are no super steep sections, and no serious obstacles, natural or man-made. The trail map has 1 black trail, 2 blue trails and a couple of green trails(roads).

They do a bike haul during the summer and don't post trail closings before they sell you a ticket. If you get up there and all the decent trails are closed, too bad. If you get up there and all the trails are rained out for the day, too bad. They won't refund you no matter the experience. Even if you only get one ride up the lift before they shut everything down, nope, you're out of luck. No rain check, no reimbursement, no nothing.Thank |
The staff at the Central Village ticket counter is as indifferent as can be. They won't help you after they take your money.
The views from this trail are really nice. The trail is narrower than Redtail and definitely sees less traffic. I rode this trail with my 13yr old, and the last couple of switchback were too tough for him. Some might complain that they were washed out, but they were still rideable and I enjoyed the challenge. I with this trail were longer, and Copper would add some faster more challenging trails.Thank |
Redtail is a pretty easy trail. It's not very steep and the switchback are very forgiving. My 13yr old enjoyed the ride, and really improved at riding switchbacks, but he wasn't seriously challenged. The trail is long enough that it would be tiring for young kids. It's an ok way for inexperienced riders to get some lift serviced riding.Thank |
