If you were to ride one trail in the front range, this should be it. It has drops, steep technical sections, and fast bermy corners. Most bike traffic goes down longhorn . 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.

       This is a amazing trail. I would highly recommend descending it. It has some steep rock chutes, and lots of bermed turns. Braking bumps before turns and dry, loose conditions make this trail even more technical than it normally is. It is packed with log drops that are simply amazing to hit at speed. Watch your speed around blind corners-this first portion of Longhorn is multi-directional.
