Review: I like this trail as a lead-in to Spruce Mountain. Simply follow the signs for the meadows loop, it will take you directly to the bottom of Spruce Mountain. Have your fun there and then head back. Final two miles is an easy grade downhill. A couple of times you will find long flowing downhills. I am not much into high tech so this combo is a perfect fit. I think the views are worth it and love animals. You will run over dung though. I usually love dirt hitting my face and all that but mixed with poo i avoided piles as much as possible. Lol. I surely wanted to protect my lips more! Have fun ladies, gentleman and kids of all ages!

Review: Started on this trail from the Spruce Mountain trailhead and worked our way around. Yes--it is boring, sandy, with some rutts on parts but it does have 3 things going for it: 1) it's long which can be ideal for a noob or one just looking to get some miles; 2) it's close to 2 other trails, greenland open space and spruce mountain which can all be connected on a loop; and 3) it is not as popular which means you will not have to fight off hordes on your ride. Parts of the trail go through pastures for grazing cattle and you will have to get off your bike a few times to open gates. Occasionally you will find a cow or two hanging out on the trail but they do scamper away as you get close. If you park at the spruce meadow trailhead and work your way up to spruce mountain, go left and follow the bigger fire road. This section of the trail is ideal for family rides with kids, wives or girlfriends. Absolutely nothing scary or technical here.

Overall, it is a pretty decent beginner trail. Just wanted to try it since we were in the area, but I will not be compelled to return. -Though the section through Spruce Mountain was pretty scenic.

Review: Okay, this is about as boring as it gets. Sandy, dull singletrack ruts across the prairie. There's some kinda nice views but nothing special. The only possible benefit of this trail is that it is adjacent to Spruce Mountain and can add some miles to that route. However, I think I'd rather do multiple laps on Spruce Mountain to up the mileage account instead of hitting this one, even though I don't like repeating myself on a ride.

Similar Trail: Head up Spruce Mountain for something a little more interesting, Hit Mt Herman/Limbaugh Canyon or the better rides in the Springs for real mountain biking.

Review: Not much to be said about this tail. A bit boring. The Mt Herman trail is just minutes from this one and offers great single track, nice views and much more challenge.

Similar Trail: Very similar to Fox Run, New Santa Fe and Kipp's Loop trails.
