Mountain Biking Red Rock Canyon

****   Add a review
#16 of 1,373 mountain bike trails in Colorado
#85 in the world

This place is known as the "Secret Garden of the Gods". It contains many of the same red rock ridges and formations.
The open space is criss-crossed with everything from wide and smooth dirt roads to tiny washed-out singletrack that climbs up the ridges. The ride is very similar to Palmer Park, as you can link together a lot of different trails for a really long ride.
The conditions are generally rocky & sandy, so choose the correct tires.
Also being built is a freeride park with ladder-drops, teeter-totters, and other stuntes.
