The South Canon Trails is a network of singletrack, some brand-new and purpose built, others old social trails, that connect from the edge of Canon City all the way up to the Section 13 trails. This network generally stays very dry and rideable almost all year long.
The trails down low right out of town are very mellow, flowy, and perfect for beginners! However, if you want to connect all the way up to Section 13, you'll have to use the Hard Time trail, which really is a Hard Time--in a good way! Some super technical sections in here, some that are unrideable either way due to the rocky knife edge that it crosses. But generally, some hike a bike on the way up, ripping good times on the way back down!
Once up Hard Time there are three different trails that connect to Temple Canyon road, each with a different flavor. Check the map, there's one obvious trail that takes you to Section 13, which then allows you to ride those loops before returning.
All in all, this is an incredible addition to the Canon City trail network!
