Mountain Biking Gunny Loop

*****   Add a review
#261 of 1,346 mountain bike trails in Colorado
#2,280 in the world

Gunny Loop can be done as a combination with other trails in the area. Trail is a little bit rocky. All singletrack. Always little bit up and down. Best would be mid March to mid November

    I've only done the outer loop of Gunny, near Little Park trailhead.

    The Gunny Loop is not a loop. It starts (south end) by climbing about 300 feet to the highest part of the network and then descends about 800 feet and is intensively technical but not nasty or extreme. It's one of the best mountain bike trails on the planet.

    When riding the Lunch Loops you'd be crazy not to build it into your circuit. It's two way but ride it south to north.

    Rode Gunny loop during the hot summer day. A bit to hot. This is a long trail to ride uphill. Lots of lung buster hills and tons of rocks. This should not be ridden alone. Best way is shuttle to the top and take Gunnector to Gunny and ride all the way to Holy Cross to Ravens Ridge then to Glade Park road.
