Some bikers prefer to get to the top of longhorn via Belcher. Please note; this is a multi use trail and you may encounter traffic coming up as you are descending.

There are a few wet /muddy spots but all can be ridden at least downhill, uphill would be very challenging and could cause a little damage in spots.

Maybe a little too wet to ride.

In some spots, the trail was dry and great to ride, mostly was very damp and moderately muddy. Give it a couple days.

 It's a multi use bidirectional trail. Most people prefer to ride it downhill though.

 Fun trail! Fast single track with lots of small drops. Don't ride up this trail, you'll be walking your bike a lot.

 I have been riding Front Range for 20 years. This is the best trail within 75 miles for steep, fast, technical DESCENDING. Climb Belcher Hill trail to beging descending on Maverick. Ride the rest down Longhorn.
