Mountain Biking Dawson's Butte

****   Add a review
#191 of 1,377 mountain bike trails in Colorado
#1,487 in the world

It's a simple loop from the parking lot--you can't get lost if you stay on the main trail. There are a bunch of detours on bridle trails--leave them to the equestrians. The singletrack is usually wide, non threatening, and passes through a mix of ponderosa forest and open meadows. The loop is just over 5 miles with about 300 feet of elevation change, so the grade is always gradual. Going CCW provides a longer, more interesting downhill. Although a map is not necessary, one is available on the Douglas County web site.
