Mountain Biking Pipeline

*****   Add a review
#275 of 1,346 mountain bike trails in Colorado
#2,513 in the world

Part singletrack, part hardscrabble/fire road (make sure to ride the Firebox @ the top for fun!)

On a wetter heavy snow year, riders might consider waiting until around June 15th to ride Firebox and above. Winter runoff widens the stream crossings and shady north facing woods make the mud deep and greasy until late June. Pedaling up Firebox after Pipeline will challenge the best technical climbers, and thrill everyone who link the two from the top.

    Rode this in probably not the best direction, but I could see riding down Pipeline being almost as fun as Doc Park in CB. We rode up 3rd Gulch off Arroyo Dr and up Pipeline, then linked over to Firebox, Dead Cow, Scratch, World's Greatest, etc etc. I would definitely recommend riding down (i.e. South-North maybe?) Pipeline if you get a shot. I'm going to next time

    Super fun trail that starts out in a densely wooded area with lots of streams that can still be fairly high till mid June. Trail splits in several areas and you can end up near the bottom of Hardscrabble road or connect with other Eagle trails and end up all the way over in Gypsum. All the trails are clearly marked. Be careful in areas as there tend to be a lot of free range cattle in the area that can turn the trail into a washboard depending on the time of year.

    This is perhaps one of my favorite rides in Eagle. It can be done as a loop or an out an back.
