This trail was one of the first re-routes conducted by the Boulder Mountainbike Alliance to pull the trail away from private land.

To access Re-Root from the trailhead at the Peak to Peak Highway and Magnolia Rd, start climbing Aspen Alley Trail #342A and take the left at the fork 0.1 miles in. After a quarter of a mile, the trail crosses Haul Rd and continues for nearly two miles of winding singletrack interspersed with technical alternative lines.

There are about a half dozen alternate technical features along this stretch of trails - some of which are extremely challenging. There is always a ride around, but this is a good place to test the limits of your skills and your suspension. A great trail to link together with the newly reworked Aspen Alley, Whoop-Di-Dos, Lookout, and others to form a really sweet single track loop showcasing some truly progressive trail design (for the Colorado Front Range anyway).

 The local trail organization should be NATO, not BMA.

 I’m not a local by any stretch. However I just spent a week out there riding your trails. It’s clear to me that there are two competing groups working on trails in the Nederland area. I’m an East Coast PA rider. I prefer rocky gnarly challenging natural terrain. We have the situation here to with trail “builders” dumbing down trails for easier access. You guys have MTB heaven out there in CO. There’s plenty for everybody. Beginner to double black. Build beginner trails but honestly leave the harder trails alone. Let the local Nederland trail folks tend their own trails. Leave single track single and let what techy stuff you have be! Honestly if you folks just go on dumbing things down hardcore riders will take their tourist dollars elsewhere. The two different trail styles make it so obvious there are competing trail groups.
