Mountain Biking Lupine

***   Add a review
#578 of 1,347 mountain bike trails in Colorado
#5,986 in the world

The Lupine Trail is an excellent climb up the front side of Emerald Mountain. It starts off hot and exposed down low, but eventually gets shadier and flowier up high. This trail also offers some fantastic views of the town in the valley below.

    This one's an uphill grinder in some spots, but you'll love it when you reach the top. Options are limitless.

    Quite good to use to climb up the mountain - the gradient is quite well controlled so you won't stretch your chain!

    Decent climb. The bottom wasn't my favorite, but the trails definitely get more interesting up high!
