This is not an uphill only trail. (Or do you want hikers to hike down side door?) Please change. It is a great downhill on a bike, especially if you don’t enjoy the tabletops and massive berms on side door.

Great views, easy traversing trail perched on a steep ridge side with a sense of exposure.

I rode it as a climb, drooling at the dh potential.

Trail Slalom
It is a great climb, and not steep other than two very short pitches near the top. Great connector to fall classic

This trail (ridden down) is a super fun smooth rip with some nice root drops and tight turns to keep you paying attention.

This was a fun downhill. It could be climbed but has a few steep rocky sections and loose sections that would zap energy. I climbed up Soda + Hippo, east across the Colorado Trail and down this. Highly recommended loop! Either loop direction would work and climb well.

Trail Slalom
This is generally a downhill trail. While it's technically a 2-way trail, biking up slalom is generally frowned upon unless it's for a comp. The preferred route up is Upper Flume to Gold Run Gulch Rd.

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

Back door trail is now preferred way up to ride Side Door down. Back Door doesn’t show up yet on Trailforks map.

Trail Sidedoor
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.
