This is a pleasant grassland/open forest ride with some great views of the Steeples Range of the Rocky Mountains. This intermediate-advanced ride is rarely flat and includes several challenging ascents and lots of tight corners. Easier if ridden counter clockwise but a workout either way.Loop Skywalker links well with other trails in the area to create a longer route.

Access Info

Access is from the Fraggle Rock or Eager Lookout trail head.
