Trail Description
About this trail
Super easy singletrack with a couple of very short challenging sections. Very possibly the best beginner's trail on the Front Range and just a lovely little park. Going clockwise on the Shadow Pine loop, the downhill section just seems to feel longer than what you earned on your climb. Adrenaline junkies should go past the first entrance and then go past the second entrance and then just keep driving until you find a different ride.

Review: It was our family's first mountain bike ride! My wife and I had our 10 year old son with us, he did great! We had an awesome time! Some small patches of snow, but very doable. No huge climbs and some fun flowing downhill sections!

Review: I am a total beginner and this was a really good start as well as a good confidence boost. Everything is clearly marked except one hairpin turn. It was a complete blast! There were a few points where we had to walk through because it was a little to difficult, but nothing that was hard.

Review: A pretty easy trail on the summer time. A great lunch time ride. Super fun fat biking in the winter.

Review: Cross country Loop. If you need to learn to ride or build base endurance this is your place. Watch for heavy foot traffic.

Review: Flying J is small, but a great place for a quick ride. The park should not be a destination for anyone, but is a good spot to check out if you are in the area and want to get in a couple miles.

Review: This trail is fun. Easy enough for a beginner, you could take kids on this trail.

Review: This trail is so much fun. If it were closer, it'd probably top my list to run laps on. The technical spots are great for beginners to build up some confidence. Unfortunately, the only time I can justify riding this trail is when I'm already up in that area. If you're close and you're a beginner, I definitely highly recommend this ride.
