Mountain Biking Luge
#297 of 1,343 mountain bike trails in Colorado
Luge is the only downhill-only trail that is rated intermediate difficulty.
Compared to the beginner trails, it is quite a bit rockier, has more bermed turns,
and has a few jumps thrown in the mix. The pitch is also quite a bit steeper--
there are no sections that require lots of pedaling. Still, the rocks aren't all that
serious. If you wanted, you could comfortably ride this trail on a 5 inch travel
bike (or less I suppose, if you really wanted to).
Luge begins right off of the top of the chairlift, but it only runs about 3/4 of the
way down the mountain. At that point, you have a number of options. The two
most obvious options are to jump on the bottom half of Avery (black diamond)
or the Warming House Trail (green circle).
