This lollipop loop is great if the trails are packed and it’s not too windy. The climbing can be, at times, aggressive. But the way down is amazeballs Generally the trails in this route are packed in quickly after a storm (after Buchanan Pass) and are zippy fast. Check trail conditions (usually Front Range Fatties on FaceBook is a go to for fatbike conditions). This is a great next level ride when you find Buchanan to be easy. For a bonus, combine the two rides! Here is the route:

- From trailhead, go west on Buchanan Pass trail
- Take the left onto Sourdough (there is a sign there with arrows and mileages)
- Climb like a spanked abominable snowman. Bonus points if you can make the first and second switchbacks!
- After 10-20 min you should reach the intersection of Sourdough (left) and Coney Cutoff (right)
- GO LEFT onto Sourdough. More climbing fun ahead, but it’s going to keep getting easier from here.
- When you come out on Beaver Reservoir Rd, go right. Here is where it will be miserable if there is any wind. It will only be 5-15 min, but it can suck
- At the Coney Flats trailhead, turn right getting onto Coney Flats Rd.
- Look for a turnoff on the RIGHT only a few yards onto the trail. They is Coney Cutoff. Go here. (You can keep going up Coney Flats Rd if it’s packed for some more fun, but it’s not part of this route).
- Follow Coney Cutoff for a quick super silly descent back to Sourdough. There are a few short, punchy climbs, so keep your eyes about you!
- LEFT onto Sourdough for the funnest downhill of this route! Ride it like you stole it!
- RIGHT onto Buchanan and back to the trailhead.
- High fives all around and frosty trail beverages (or whisky if it’s too cold)
