Trail Description
About this trail
Park at the Miller Activity Center parking lot (or start on sidewalk just off the Plum Creek Parkway entrance) and join the trail at the base of the "mini incline" stairs (200 steps to the top of the hill).

The trail continues past the steps and the singletrack starts. Stay to the right as the first left will take you to the top of the mini incline. Follow the singletrack as it twists and winds around the hills of this 220 acre Town Park.

Don't forget to stop and look around as the views from the tops of the hills are impressive and provide a great overlook to Castle Rock and the surroundings area.

The trail has very few straight sections, so use caution on the blind corners when going up or down the switchbacks. The trail has some short but steep climbs but nothing that a fit, regular mountain biker can't power up. The reward is worth it for the views and the fun and quick downhills.

There are few trail intersections, so getting lost on this trail will be tough. In the future, a shortcut will be added at the north end of the park to cross over Wolfensberger to access Ridgeline Open Space trails.

Review: This is Ridgeline's rebel sibling. A great addition to Ridgeline and when combined, makes for a fine outing. Having the trail system up the road from where I live makes for many outings. The design of the MAC is an adrenaline shot Ridgeline lacks. You're going up or down with quick and exciting descents to boot. Not as busy as Ridgeline with the Hikers, Bikers, etc. The North side (nearest the Ridgeline connector bridge) is the quietest and most fun. All climbs and descents are quick though. Erosion is minimal but the trail needs to be respected during the Winter months.

Review: For a neighborhood trail, it is awesome. Some really fun sections, but nothing major, no massive climbs, no massive downhills.

Review: Some of the best trails in Castle Rock. Short, but you can link to Ridgline for a longer ride.

Review: Pretty average in every way (except tech, rather less than average in that regard), but better than other typical suburban open space parks in the area. I do like that some of the trail is narrower than other local offerings. The stretches in the ponderosas at the north end are particularly nice.

Review: This trail is a great single track. It has some steep climbs and very flowy down hill sections. There are some blind corners, so be careful when coming up on them. The trail consists of several loops that are well marked. If you need a longer ride you can always connect this with ridgeline open space. This trail is fairly easy and not very techneical. A beginner could easily do this as long as they are careful, but it is a narrow trail.

Review: Love this trail! When you loop all 4 together it's about 7 miles. You can start at either end as all the trails connect. Punchy climbs, super fast single track, lots of switch backs as well as some technical rocky sections. I ride this trail several times per week before work.
