Mountain Biking Pony Express Loop

The Pony Express Loop follows a section of the Pony Express mail route through
Emigrant Pass. It is a good trail for all levels, although a few of the climbs may be
hard for beginning cyclist. Much of the climbing can be avoided by starting your
ride at Austin Summit.

The loop begins in downtown Austin and climbs to Austin Summit. Your climbing
effort will be rewarded. The trail heads north along a rocky two-track and through
some grassy spring areas. A sharp left turn brings you on the Pony Express route.

Once the pass is reached, there is a good descent on a return trail to Highway 50.
This section can be very fast and fun. Watch for potential traffic and be prepared
for the short, steep climb back to downtown.
