Review: The trail is closed till March 31. Currently at the trail to get to this trail is still a little bit muddy however it still lotta fun. Kind of a good hill on the way there so it's kind of a mile and a half decent incline. Do not use the directions that are on this app they take you three or 4 miles away. 11033 S Monarch Blvd Lone Tree, CO 80124 United States This is Rocky Heights middle school and where you will park to get to the entrance. Have fun probably not good for little kids until probably mid teens.

Review: Fun pair of lollypop trails. Some technical looking sections but fairly tame with suspension.

Review: This place is a cool track. It is really easy with a few technical bits but really fun. The beginning from the trailhead is a lot of uphill but that is really fun when coming back. I then go on this other trail that I don't know the name of. This trail has a technical rock section that could be difficult to beginners. I then go on the watering hole loop. This is a fun loop but a rock garden at the beginning going into a stream and then a even amount of uphill and downhill on this 3.3 mile loop. Overall it's a great trail and I would recommend it.

Review: Fun trails, though very sanitized. There are a few spots where you can find some technical bits, but otherwise its all very easy.

Review: One of my local favorites for sure. I have been riding this trail for several weeks now at least once or twice a week. I must say, I had a hard time finding the trail at first as I tried to rely on the single tracks app for directions so I recommend not doing that. Very easy, start at the middle school next to rock canyon high school. There is parking right by the trail head which will put you on the east/west trail at first. This will lead you to the actual trail and there's a map at the start near the parking lot. Watch out for lost cows on this section as I nearly ran into one that had somehow wondered off the nearby pasture. There is a bit of some uphill to get to wildcat mountain, about a mile and a half or so. This does make for a really fun ride back though. Once you reach the gate, I usually go left on the waterhole trail, do the out and back lookout trail which I highly recommend, back to waterhole, continue going left then do the last trail loop which I can't recall the name. All this back to the parking lot is about 8.5 miles. I do want to add that although I work in highlands ranch I do not live there and have never been kicked out by anyone. It does say that it's a private trail for residence but never seen anyone out there to enforce that. Just a really fun, nice flowy single track with minimal climbs, one small technical section, and some nice downhill. I brought my wife who is completely new to mountain biking and she did just fine. Highly recommend it

Review: Beautiful, fun, and well maintained. Good beginner trail with very little climbing and only a spot or two of technical skill needed.

Review: This is my go to after or before work ride. You can make this a walk in the park or a burner. So luck to have this right out the back door!

Review: Pumpa'licious. These short loops are littered with wonderful rollers and perfect dirt. Made to go fast and effortlessly this is a great place to flow. Not many features or berms but feels like primative flow track.
