Mountain Biking Dikes Trail

#1,369 of 1,377 mountain bike trails in Colorado
#35,578 in the world

This is a fairly steep out and back singletrack trail that runs 3.4 miles (one way) in a general north south direction. The trail runs through beautiful mixed conifer forest with nice views of the Sangre de Cristo range.  There are lots of switchbacks especially on the south end along with some rocky gnar along the way. After a steep first 0.1 mile start, the trail continues to climb about 900' to a top at the 2.5 mi mark. The trail then descends 430' over 0.9 miles to the south terminus. The north end has 8 switchbacks over the first 1.33 miles of climbing. The south end has 15 switchback over the 0.9 mile descent. The highlight of the ride is descending the 2.5 mile downhill (~900'), heading north from the top back to the north trailhead.
