Trail Description
About this trail
This trail is short, less than 2.5 miles each way. It is popular with hikers and is mostly about 4' wide and smooth with a couple technical spots along the way. The middile portion is an easy ride, but the first and last half miles are steep and strenuous. You will alternate between open meadows and nicely forested singletrack with huge rock formations along the way.

Review: This trail is pretty good, although it is extremely busy. The first and last miles are good, but the middle of the trail can be a bit boring on the way down as it is mostly flat and very wide. Overall a decent trail.

Review: This trail is a fast, easy after work ride. The problem is that it's nowhere near anyone's work. It's a beautiful beginner or dog ride.

Review: This trail is too short, much of it too wide, and too popular with hikers to be a great ride. The beginning and ending legs of the trail are far too hard for a novice and the middle part is far too dull for an expert. The reason you come here is for the scenery, which is some of the very best in the Pikes Peak region. While most of the trail is smooth, there are some rooty spots and some big granite boulders in the way, one of which will cause most to dismount. If you want to add on miles, you can add and additional out and back on the fork onto trail 644A (about halfway into the ride). This trail goes up to Devil's Playground and ultimately to the summit of Pikes Peak. BEWARE--this will involve a lot of hike a bike and exposure above treeline. * Review edited 7/8/2011

Similar Trail: Rampart Reservoir is still the best ride in the area.
