Review: While not rich with climbing, don't let the lack of elevation fool you. Most of the trail is beginner to intermediate friendly, and the surrounding views are a site to behold. One noteworthy item, sometimes the reservoir is high and the normal crossing at Boggs Creek to the Voodoo loop is 5'-6' deep instead of 5-6", requiring you to ride up the creek bed to a hike-a-bike (I managed to ride half way up) to the top of the mesa.

From some structures I saw there appears to be some mining history in the area, and there are plenty of cactus to poke your tires too, so be prepared.

Review: This trail system at Lake Pueblo has something for everyone. There are some technical sections and a lot of flowy stuff as well. I went down here the other week when everything else was snowed in. The trails just had a little dusting of dry snow on them. I will definitely be back to get my rmountain biking fix during the winter (as I don't have a fatbike).

Review: A nice ride with a few technical spots in the canyons. Tops of the hills are nice and level with wide trails (good for beginners to get some mileage in).

Review: This trail has a little of everything to it. If your a beginner stick to the outside loops. For those that are more advanced you can start diving into the interior more. The trails that dive down into the canyons are more on the advanced side like freeride and broken hip. One of the downsides to this trail is that some of the sections can be filled with tumble weeds. All in all its a great trial to get some miles in.

Review: Great trail system, lots of fun turns. Trail is exposed a lot. Beautiful views. I've had over 30 miles in the saddle in the park twice this year and will ride the system again.

Review: Fairly easy, with nice views of the lake

Review: This place is really great. I rode it for the first time today, and had a blast on my hardtail. It is a huge area and there really is something for everyone. I spent about four hours there and covered a good portion of the park but there are still plenty of runs to explore. I hope to get back later this week. There is lots of easy single track that novice riders can enjoy. More advanced riders can also enjoy much of the smooth single track as well because much of it is really fast with good flow and fun corners and switchbacks to keep it interesting. There advanced/technical trails as well with rock garden, drops and other obstacles for people who like a bit more of a challenge. You can put in a lot of miles of single track at this place pretty quickly, and you can make your ride about as challenging as you want.

Review: Rode trails in July 2014. I was simply driving by and stopped to take the chance on the trails for a couple of house. Very gladly surprised by the variety of features and trails. I did not get to ride very far from trail head, but enjoyed the company of one of the trail stewards, who happened to be at the parking lot at the same time. Highly recommended.
