You can ride it as a full loop from town, up Red Canyon Road, then up Lookout Mountain Road but it is long. Most people do a shuttle up Lookout Mtn Road. Trail starts on BLM double track, pay attention to a few turns. Don't miss the turn onto single track (Bear Creek). Forest Hollow is a nice, rolling, thru the woods ride along the edge of Glenwood Canyon. Be sure to stop for some great views along the way. The final part of the trail is a steep ride down into town. Be conscientious of hikers and dogs along this section. Most people don't get as far as Forest Hollow on foot but the closer you get to town the more folks you'll start to see. Riding season is May- Oct (weather depending). First rides in the spring can be tough due to down trees and snow drifts.
