The new beginner friendly intermediate Fast Money will be open in 2021. As of August 2021, the upper section is open, this route provides a way to moderately climb to the summit of Maryland Mountain and have 2 downhill trails.

Start at the Hidden Treasure trailhead, cross the bridge and head down the Historic Gilpin Tramway. This isn't the most exciting trail since it's an old railway, but it's scenic and is a nice warm up. Turn right on Easy Money, take Easy Money all the way to the Fast Money/Hard Money intersection just below the summit of Maryland Mountain. Fast Money peels off to the left, hit this first. This trail is fast and rollable without many rocks. You'll end up back on Easy Money. Take a left, and climb the short distance to Claimjumper. Claimjumper is more rowdy and technical than Fast Money and there's a few advanced alt-lines thrown in for good measure. At the bottom, turn right on Paymaster and climb back up Easy Money. This time, take Hard Money back down to the tram and to the parking area.
