Mountain Biking Ute Pass Trail

***   Add a review
#770 of 1,346 mountain bike trails in Colorado
#7,948 in the world

Mostly wide, gravelly and steep but non-technical singletrack. The trail veers away from the incline and more closely parallels US 24. At the far end, it is close to US 24 and a right turn will deliver you to a pavement return to Manitou Springs. A left turn will put you on Long's Ranch Road, which will take you back over to the top of the incline where you can descend the last 4 miles of the Barr Trail.

Getting there
Trail begins at the base of the Manitou incline at the west end of Manitou Springs. Take Manitou Avenue West through Manitou Springs until the roundabout where you turn left onto Ruxton. Follow Ruxton to the Incline Parking or you can go to the Barr Trail parking lot and star by going down/east to the Incline start. As the incline begins to ascend, the Ute Pass trail veers to the right.

    Not gonna lie, this trail is steep and loose. Ascending is hard and some spots have 20% grade, most riders will walk these areas. But when you arrive at the top the trail evens out for over a mile then has you ride on gravel road but there are singletrack offshoots to the left, but you have to pay attention.
    Not much trail maintenance, allowing overgrowth to make it dangerous in the summer.

    Lots of loose gravel on a steep grade without much of a payoff. There are far better trails in the area. This one is good if you're wanting to make for a long day of character building riding the network of trails on the lower flanks of Pikes Peak.
