Trail Too Long
A fun descent but with so many tight pointy rocky pinch points and super tight switchbacks to kill your speed and flow its just so so. Add in a bunch of hikers and you've got a claissic Front Range trail yay!

Trail Too Long
I have no idea why Trailforks shows this as a climb. You will have a much better time climbing Bergen Peak and descending Too Long or even going back down Bergen. This trail is full of extremely punchy climbs. Great place to work on technical and steep climbs or dwell in the pain cave, but if you just want to get to the top to have a great descent, go up Bergen.

Trail Elk Ridge
Makes for a nice, moderately technical climb or fast descent. Lots of hiker traffic though.

Trail Bergen Peak
Better as a climb than a descent. Ride this up and take Too Long down.

Trail Too Long
Really fun descent, almost worth 5 stars using Front Range standards.

This loop is better in the opposite direction. Up Bergen, down Too Long.

Trail Bergen Peak
Trail is in decent shape. A little snow/ice/mud. But rideable.
