This is not a normal MTB trail. I guess that's why I'm only the third person to review it. But I live in the local area and there's only so many times that you can ride Hall Ranch, eh?
Did a lot of hike-a-bike. I'm a 49 year old that's relatively new to the sport. I cleared a lot of technical sections - probably due to my bike and not me (Trek Superfly).
Lots of shade, creek crossings and tons of rocks and roots. But there was quite a bit of smooth singletrack. Beautiful forest scenery and the temperature was a little cooler than the front range and even Lyons to the east.
Bring plenty of water and be prepared to dismount quite a bit. Still, it was a very rewarding ride and the homesteads were cool.
Heil Valley (also rocky but not quite as scenic).
