Tricky, technical ride. Fairly short, only 6 miles or so, but lots of rocks making for tough climbing on the way up, which translates into a fun downhill on the way back. Some real rocky parts, a big baby-head field, then at the top a double-track fire-road that goes to a bunch of old homesteads from back in the day. More trails are accessible once you hit the first homestead. A fun ride all around.

From Boulder, take 36 N/W past Lyons, the trailhead is about 20 minutes outside Lyons (roughly), just a small parking lot on the side of the road with a sign/map.
