Mountain Biking High Chaparral Open Space

There are two main loops, connected in the middle kind of like an infinity symbol. There are also a few shortcuts, social trails and connectors to the adjoining residential area.

Getting there
From I-25, take Austin Bluffs Parkway east to Stetson Hills Blvd. Go right on Stetson HIlls. Just as you crest the hill before hitting Powers, turn right and follow the short road to a dead end at the kiosk. From the kiosk, follow dirt to the left--you will pass a few houses, cross a street and pass a few more houses before entering the open space proper.

    Definitely a beginner trail (very smooth and short), but a good beginner trail. It is pedally fast. There is some flow to the trail as most the curves allow you to keep much of your momentum due to their radius and some curves are banked a little. This is a good safe place to bring a first-timer and give them a few smiles. It also gets a lot of sun, so snow melts quickly and it dries out really fast in most places. Much of the trail is scree, so it is actually better a little wet than dry.

    I would consider this a good warm up area. Driving specifically to ride it? I wouldn't. Living close to it though? Absolutely.

    This is typical easy city open space riding with mostly wide trails and no significant hills or obstacles. There are a couple switchbacks in some scrub oak, which is about as exiting as this trail gets. It's good for a few laps if you live within riding distance, but otherwise not worth any kind of a drive.
