      The Magnolia Area consists of a large network of user-created single track trails that are in the process of redevelopment and expansion. In December 2016, the United States Forest Service (USFS) Boulder Ranger District (BRD) released its final decision for the Magnolia Non-Motorized Trails Project. The project will formalize a 44-mile, non-motorized trail system across about 6,000 acres branching out from the Peak to Peak Highway in areas known as East Magnolia and West Magnolia. Currently there are about 60 miles of trail on the ground in that area, including 14 miles of National Forest system trails and about 46 miles of non-system or “user-created” trails.

      The area is currently poorly signed and many of the trails intermingle with roads, leading to confusing route finding. Some of the routes are great single track trail, but other areas have trails in dire need of maintenance or rerouting. Luckily the Boulder Mountainbike Alliance (BMA) and other partners, including the Wildland Restoration Volunteers (WRV), the Nederland Area Trails Organization (NATO), the Boulder Area Trails Coalition (BATCO), and others, have stepped up to the plate to implement the BRD's plan. In 2017 BMA and NATO led trail work days on Aspen Alley, Whoop-Di-Dos, Sugar Magnolia, and Pungy Stick that have greatly increased the quality of the riding experience. More good things will come in 2018 and beyond. Expect the Magnolia Area to become a key mountain biking destination for Front Range riders over the next several years.
