#374 of 1,343 mountain bike trails in Colorado
This is an amazing backcountry shuttle ride, starting above tree line and descending about 6600' through beautiful forests across and down the east slopes of Pikes Peak. It is all singletrack except the one mile downhill on Gold Camp Road. You will climb about 1000' and connect several trails of different trail systems. The ride links together Elk Park, Barr, Mountain View, Lake Moraine, Jones Downhill, Captain Jacks, Gold Camp Road, The Chutes, and Stratton. You can end at either the Ridgeway Trailhead or La Veta Trailhead in Stratton.
