Starting from the same saddle as Hard Money near the summit of Maryland Mountain, Fast Money is a beginner-friendly intermediate trail bike-only downhill trail (try saying that 3 times fast). It starts out steep and fast and after crossing Easy Money it becomes more windy and playful with plenty of side hits that will keep all riders entertained.

      Beginner/intermediate perspective. I rate it a 4/5. Nice flow and fast berms although I felt some of the features and jumps were awkwardly placed most likely so that they would be optional for riders who didn't want to hit them.

      It's a fine beginner trail. My spouse seems to enjoy it so I ride it with her, but really after the first junction it's a green flow trail. Should be named not too fast money.

      This is one of the best built trails on the Front Range. Incredibly well built and a great trail to dial in your bike handling skills. This is THE trail for working on berms, cornering, jumps, pumping, and transitions. Major kudos to the trail builders.

      Really great flow and an awesome warmup to Hard Money. Nice work trail builders. Def a blue flow.

      Finished down to paymaster although the section between easy and paymaster is still very new and loose. Overall fun trail, although some of the jumps are awkward dips to lips, but I’d guess they’re still not done building it.
