This trail is a great trail with plenty of everything and everybody can do it. There are some tricky steep switchbacks coming up the mountain, no shame to walk here! Some rocky areas and beautiful views from the top of the mountain. This trail is better suited to intermediate and advanced riders. I prefer to go left from the trail head, but either way will work.

Before you go
  • No Drinking water
  • No E-bikes permitted
  • No Fat biking allowed in winter
  • No Fee required
  • No Lift service
  • No Night riding allowed

Getting there
From Highway 260, turn onto Penrod at the stoplight. Continue past the chuck wagon steakhouse and turn right onto Porter Mountain Road. Continue for about 6 miles, trailhead will be off a dirt road to the left. When coming up the hill there is a long sweeping left turn, and a dirt road after it on the left, SKIP IT, and go to the next dirt road with a cattle guard approx 500 ft up the road.

    Excellent Scenic Trail. As most have said, this trail has it all. Some fun decents, techy switchbacks, sharp rocks and some long tiring climbs, too. One of my favorites trails in the area. A must do!

    Great trail close to town. Has a bit of everything. RIde CCW and you'll get a long rocky technical descent, steady climb, and twisty singletrack through the pines.

    They don't call it Pano for Nuttin'
    Great views if you go slow, but that's hard to do. This is the local benchmark Strava trail. From the trail head spur go counter clockwise & return on the same spur trail
