    So tame, it's hard to even call this a mountain biking trail. Best use is as a quick spin on a recovery day, or to get cycling rather than driving access to any of the neighborhoods or businesses along the way.

    Trail head not correctly named (or i might of just missed it, idk), VERY flat, almost completely paved. Ran right though a neighborhood. Remember, i might have gone on the wrong trail, but where the 'Lobo Trail' starts is very confusing to me. Many families on the trail.

    A flat, open ride with no difficulty. Great for scenic views and an easy cruise ride on an off day. Popular with walkers, so prepare to pass a lot.

    Nice and easy trail to hit when you don't have the time to hit a trail in the mountains. The Lobo trail is a collection of graded double track and paved greenways that tracks from Longmont to Boulder, CO. There are several off-shoots along the way to add additional mileage to your ride. Once in Boulder, you can hit a number of foothills trails, or loop back to Longmont via a different set of trails. I hit the Eagle and Lefthand Trails (single track and double track) on my way back to Longmont.
