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. This section of Longhorn is now a directional, downhill only, mountain bike only trail.

       Brutal trail that mostly consists of "steep flow mank" (as my buddy described it). This is only a "great trail" if you live in the front range and are subjected to hellishly steep, rocky, and poorly built trails all the time. But still...its about as good as that Front Range trail genre can be.

       Go ride this trail. And ride it fast. All of the dirt drops with wooden ledges are insane amounts of fun if you hit them at speed. Add to that some awesome natural rock features and you have an amazing trail.
