Geographically, Marshall Mesa lies in the transition from hills to plains, even more so than its connected area to the west, Doudy Draw. Some trails are moderately treed, but most of the trails are in the open amongst the grasses. Expect mostly easy grades, and only a few technical areas. Most of the trails are natural surface, but some areas like the recently completed Meadowlark and Mayhoffer-Singletree sections are crusher fines and suitable for skinnier tires and beginners.

The Marshall Mesa area lies south of Marshall Road and east of Highway 93 in southern Boulder County. It’s a quick and easy ride from Boulder itself, and sees a ton of bikes, hikers, runners, and dogs.  From Boulder, the best trailheads are Marshall Mesa and Greenbelt Plateau; from the east, you can get onto the system from the Coalton Trailhead in Superior.

If you link up all the trails in the Marshall Mesa area, you can achieve 20 miles of dirt.  This system is a favorite in the winters, as it's consistently the first trail system to dry out following snow.
