Highlights: Short and sweet clockwise ride on smooth trail, once over the grind of the first few hills. Sweeping views of the Yampa River, town and ski area, while riding through ample wildflowers and grasses.
Note: For a thrill, take the Overlook loop, a little more rocky and close to the edge. Emerald trails are crowded in the summer, especially around lunchtime and after work so ride with respect for other users.
