Mountain Biking Oil Well Flats

Oil Well Flats is a brand-new singletrack trail system being built around old 4x4 and doubletrack roads. There's currently over 10 miles of brand-new sweet singletrack to ride, with many more miles already under construction and planned for the future.
This trail system is undoubtedly cross-country oriented, but that doesn't mean it's easy. Some of these trails are rather technical, incorporating many natural rocks and features for a very pedally, technical disposition.
That said, all of the singletrack is superbly designed, contouring with the land and passing by some of the most interesting and scenic features.
Thanks to the unique climate surrounding Canon City, this area stays very dry, even during the winter.
Be sure to bring a camera for all of the fantastic views, and a little suspension for the rocks wouldn't hurt, either.
