      Very dry, could use some rain. Quite loose and sandy, watch those tight turns.

       Fun little section along the canyon rim with a few small rock features, watch out for rattle snakes in the summer.

       There are some rock gardens on the west side of the loop that are fun to practice on. There are a few 12" or higher drops/pop-ups. This area is a short distance from Castle Rock and Parker and a mile or so north of Franktown. It's a great place to go if you only have an hour or two to get a ride in.

       This is a fun, technical loop that I would recommend to anyone who wants a flowy, technical and flat ride.
      The trails winds its way through a large rock garden, and climbs out onto a plain. You weave your way through the grasslands, up a long, mellow hill. This trail is seeing a lot of use of late, and bypass options are springing up everywhere. Please, STAY ON THE TRAIL!!
      This trail is in danger of being closed to bikes if us riders keep making bypasses and freeride lines here.
      Please guys, this trail is a gem- it is close to town, it is flat, whip- fast and technical. Don’t get it closed just because you wanted a rock kicker, or thought that cutting corners would make you faster.

       Fun loop that can be connected to some secret trails around the edges, with some fun moves in the rock gardens and lots of rock gaps if you’re really cookin
