Ride Description

While the sun sets around 8:30, this is the time of year to ride up at high elevations!   This trail system is all singletrack. Lots of trails here, and none of them marked.   If you want to get to know these trails without getting lost, come join us!   Some twisty & flowy, others rocky and straight.    Some smooth, some a bit technical.

Be prepared for ~2 hours of riding; plus, I probably don't need to say this, but be prepared for the possibility of cold rain.   Expect cooler temps at 9000'.

Please RSVP for this event so we have a good headcount for the number of riders!

HITCH A RIDE TO THE TRAILHEAD!  CARPOOL!!

Get with the program, and carpool!   Let's meet at the Justice Center parking lot (SW corner, near the creek trail) at 5:20, and leave no later than 5:30.   The Justice Center parking lot is at the SE corner of Canyon and 6th St.

Individuals who want to pre-plan carpools may add comments at the bottom of this page (click "add new comments").

  2. All riders ride at their own risk; group leaders take no responsibility for rider safety/injury.
