Mountain Biking West Avon Preserve

This is a network of a half dozen all singletrack trail segments. There are some good climbs and descents. There are plenty of switchbacks, some are broad, some are tight, and some have huge berms, but none are technical and all are ridable.
This network is on the north side of the freeway with most aspects facing south, so it dries faster than other rides in the Vail Valley, extending the riding season nicely.

    This is a very nice network with good variety as long as you're not looking for lots of tech. There is enough climbing to get the heartrate up and a couple extended descents. The segment called Lee's Way Down is excellent with tabletops, small gaps, and some huge berms. It would be an awesome flow trail if not for all the stutter braking bumps--it seems these trails,while relatively easy, coax some riders who get in over their heads and do a lot of panic braking. Overall, a very nice system, though. Being on the dry, south facing hills, it has a scrub brush and juniper environment more akin to Eagle or even Cortez than nearby Beaver Creek/Vail. Overall, a very nice, and easily accessible area with a relatively long season for its altitude.
