“We’re back in Salida on the Monarch Crest Trail, and today we are going to take the Fooses Creek trail down off of the top. I absolutely love this ride! It’s a great option if you don’t have the time or energy to complete the entire 33 mile Crest ride. Fooses starts with some high alpine riding and a gnarly drop in. Later on things mellow out with some very fun and flowing riding in what looks like Endor forest. The ride finishes up about 8 miles out of Poncha Springs where you can ride your bike about 40 minutes back into town to hit the local brewery.
Enjoy the ride!” -The Singletrack Sampler
