Mountain Biking Kessel Run

*****   Add a review
#87 of 1,378 mountain bike trails in Colorado

Sweet fast singletrack that you can ride after heading up Prime Cut or head up 18 Road to the Joe's/Prime Cut/Kessel Junction. The trail is narrow slalom like trail with dips and tight twisty turns. Locals say it can be used an out and back, but with the amount of people coming back down, its not recommended. And you can always say "I made the Kessel Run in less than twelve parsecs"
