Fast and flowy through the trees. The Ponderosa Loop sits on top of a mesa and is accessible either from the south via Left Hand canyon and the Wapiti trail or from the north via Lyons and the Picture Rock trail. The Boulder Mountainbike Alliance has done extensive rock armoring on the trail to protect the natural habitat.

A couple wet spots, but nothing to cry about. Barely got the bike dirty. Perfect riding conditions.

 I ride this trail a few times a week for a lunch break. This is not a black. I'd give it a blue-green rating. A few little spots, but pretty easy.
