Greenbelt Plateau Trail

Trail Meter: 
Fair

We’re not going to stretch the truth here. This isn’t singletrack nirvana. It is, however, a great section of trail to connect High Plains to the other Marshall Mesa trails. It is a really wide road with a little climb up to the top and a nice quick descent back down. If you just have to ride something skinny, there is a singletrack on the east side of the road for long stretches. Thanks to your friends here at BMA, that singletrack next to the road is officially legal to ride on. There is, however, one small section just off this trail that will test your skill. About halfway down the hill, look for a trail off to the right. This short connector has some water bars and some rocky steps. Beginners, watch your step! There are quite a few hikers out there, so please be courteous!

County trails in dirty biz loop are good to ride. One soft spot on Mayhoffer close to 66th.

Thawing makes mud... Let the trail recover!

Snowy and packed. Great for fat tires. More foot traffic than bike or ski so it's quite a bumpity ride.
The trail from Greenbelt TH to the Hwy-93 crossing and on over to Flatirons TH is unpacked and very difficult to ride.
