Mountain Biking Redtail

#780 of 1,322 mountain bike trails in Colorado

The American Flyer lift leaves you right at the top of this trail. This singletrack drops about 1400 feet as it zig-zags down the mountain. The trail runs across the ski hill until it gets into the trees where it switches back, sending you back across the ski run until you enter the trees, where you find the next switchback. The trail bed is mostly dirt, with occasional rocks and water bars thrown in. The technical challenge is pretty low. There are no super steep sections, and no serious obstacles, natural or man-made. While there aren't a lot of challenges, you'll really get your switchback practice in!

    Redtail is a pretty easy trail. It's not very steep and the switchback are very forgiving. My 13yr old enjoyed the ride, and really improved at riding switchbacks, but he wasn't seriously challenged. The trail is long enough that it would be tiring for young kids. It's an ok way for inexperienced riders to get some lift serviced riding.
