there are a lot of down trees that makes the downhill kind of boring... aside of that is a nice ride!

There is a jump from the bottom of Bakers Tank to Iowa Mill Rd. Doesn't it take Valdoro to get over there?

Do ride this downhill. Absolutely worth the ride.
For the lazy amongst us, a car can take you up Boreas pass. Park by the HUGE tank (Baker's Tank).

This is generally a downhill trail. While it's technically a 2-way trail, biking up Barney Ford is generally frowned upon unless it's for a competition. The preferred route up is Juniata!! You will get some not great looks climbing BF.

Beginning Nightmare on Baldy from the Sally Barber mine, it looks extremely steep and daunting -- especially if you've been climbing a lot already. Once you get past the first 100 feet or so, though, it becomes a shady and not-so-strenuous spin up the mtn to more varied downhill options. Fun trail!

Who wouldn't like bike optimized, downhill only berms, turns and jumps? Really well done, super fun. Main line rollable but lots of opportunities for bigger air and doubles.

just rode the trail. It was re built. It now features tabletop jumps, hips, wooden features and it’s now downhill only. 10/10 would recommend riding up backdoor and down sidedoor

Flow trails are meant to be ridden downhill! Please take Juniata up so people don’t have to stop all the time for Uphill riders!

Great trail up and down! I climbed it on the way to sidedoor, and it has great views and is a manageable climb. I also came back down it, and it flows well and has plenty of jumps to keep your smile going and the stoke high!

A flow trail that did not exactly meet expectation. Its a shame as it could have been a great trail, but there are alot of grade reversals that kill your speed and flow.

It was just rebuilt last summer. Try it again. Hands down one of the best non-park DH trails in Colorado, now.
