Crews Gulch Regional Trail

First trail I've tried using the app. It was a nice ride. My trike made it through easily. Most of one way is downhill so the return was a little more tiring. Overall, pretty fun for an evening ride.

Pikes Peak Greenway Trail

Great Ride but…..

September, 2022 by rjacob3783

The greenway is beautiful and a wonderful ride! However, south of America the Beautiful Park there are multiple homeless encampments, especially under the bridges.

Mineral Belt Trail

9/11/22 Mineral Belt Trail

September, 2022 by paulz

My wife and I rented bikes from Cycles of Life in Leadville Co. My wife rented an E bike and I rented a Gravel bike. Both bikes were excellent bikes. The Gravel bike was a carbon Fiber Niner RLT 1x (almost $6 k bike!). The shop also had excellent service with bike instructions and directions to the trail. Anyway, we rode the trail clockwise going up for about 6 miles then back down. The trail was macadam the whole way and very scenic views and many historic mining sites along the way. My wife appreciated the E bike as our total ascent from the shop was about 800 ft for the ride. I loved the ride and not many trail users.

Ten Mile Canyon Recpath

9/10/22 Ten Mile Canyon Recpath from Frisco to Copper Mountain.

September, 2022 by paulz

My wife and I rented bikes from Pioneer Bike shop on Summit Blvd. in Frisco Co. We rode to Ten Mile Canyon Recpath from there. It was a little confusing to get to the path since there are numerous access points and there are numerous paths in Frsisco. Once on the path, it was a 10 ish mile and about 600 ft climb to Copper Mtn ski village. Glad my wife rented an E bike. It was a macadam trail. It was a saturday and a nice day. The path was rather busy. Riders going downhill ride rather fast. Must be alert as the path curves often. Wish we had more time to spend in the Ski Village. There was a festival going on.

Upper Gold Camp Road

Great views but bad biking surface

September, 2022 by normanbowers

This is a fine trail for hiking, but not for biking. Trail surface is mostly loose gravel, there is usually one track on the side that is firm enough to ride on. This trail is not suitable for kids and occasional riders because of the loose material and steep grade. I have ridden rail trails in 42 states and this one is the steepest I have encountered, probably because it was a narrow gauge railway. The steep grade, high altitude and loose material make the trail challenging for casual riders. I was constantly in the lower two gears of my mountain bike, and uphill averaged 4 mph with breaks.

The portage around the collapsed tunnel is an unimproved hiking trail and will be difficult for kids and older adults. It would require a stout person to handle the portage with an electric bike.

A better bike ride is the gold camp road. Although there is some car traffic the surface is much better. Start at pullout No. 1 near the Bear Creek Nature Center (245 Bear Creek Road) and ride up hill 5 miles to the parking lot near Hellen Hunt Falls. That is 3 miles of asphalt and 2.3 miles gravel with one tunnel, turn around and coast back to your car.

Point Alta Vista Trail

Great views of Royal Gorge Bridge

September, 2022 by normanbowers

Nice trail for a walk or bike ride if you have an hour or two. The trail ends at an observation point that extends over the canyon for a nice view of the royal gorge bridge and the river canyon. It is an easy bike ride except for the detour around a collapsed bridge which is more like a single track. If not comfortable riding single track, jump up on the road until the road meets up with the trail on the other side of the bridge. Stay on the trail to avoid flats caused by cactus and sand burrs.
Parking area is easy to miss, look for Royal Gorge Ranch & Resort sign which is at the first big curve south of US-50 highway.

US 36 Bikeway

exhausted from exhaust

September, 2022 by rgdied

Would recommend respirator unless you like carbon monoxide. Very wide surface and less dangerous than the road. Lots of parallel traffic. Air quality alert.

Clear Creek Trail (CO)

Out and Back

September, 2022 by bill.spam

Started in Golden, went all the way to the South Platte River, and back. As of today there are no problems nor detours, excepting some artists working on painting cool stuff on the actual concrete trail towards the South Platte end, and that's just 2 very short sections just to the side of the concrete part of the trail. Not a problem. I have enjoyed this trail for the better part of 20 years, and there are no longer any more partially-finished sections. If you don't live in Golden, I recommend starting at the South Platte and working your way up the "hill" to Golden ... then you are more or less going downhill on the second half of the ride. Just a teensy bit easier.
Enjoy!
Oh, 5 stars because it is a nice long trail in the city that, with the exception of a small section, is all trail, and no streets.

Glenwood Canyon Recreation Trail

From Glenwood Springs to the top and back

September, 2022 by gtedlarson1

We rode 16 miles up, with 950’ elevation gain, then 16 back down, and thoroughly enjoyed the easy ride next to the enchanting Colorado River. The canyon changed character as we rode. It was spectacular. We saw dozens of rafters engaging the rapids, along with calmer stretches. While it was fun being next to (and under) I-70, a few times the traffic noise was distracting. We enjoyed our time in Glenwood Springs in this Western Slope of Colorado, and recommend this trail, and the Rio Grande.

Rio Grande Trail

Aspen to Glenwood Springs

September, 2022 by gtedlarson1

This became one of our top ten trails around the country. We got on the RFTA bus in Glenwood Springs at the 27th Street bus stop for a 75 minute ride up to Aspen, with our bikes on the front bike holders. After exploring Aspen town, the ride down (mostly level valleys and 1% to 2% downhills) was an nice four-hour rail-trail ride covering 42 miles. Loved it!

Poudre River Trail

great ride!

August, 2022 by mpso55

Perfect day. Trail was wide open with minimal traffic.

Mineral Belt Trail

favorite ride

August, 2022 by cpkzgn2nfv

My friend Mary and I do this ride every summer. In the fall with the aspens turning can’t be missed. The long way up is worth the ride down. Not steep, just an even ride up. Feel free to stop and read history signs and just look around you. C Cravens
