Details

 Ride the Douglas Co. East West Trail.  This is a favorite Front Range ride.  NO technical skills required.  No rocks or tree roots.  There are flowing, rolling short hills.  This trail is about the width of a neighborhood sidewalk, nice packed dirt.  Beautiful prairie landscape between Highlands Ranch and Cherokee Ranch with great views of the front range.  Birds, flowers, scrub oak.Good parking lot with restrooms.  There is no water available at trailhead nor on trail so bring plenty. We will ride to Griggs Road trailhead for lunch and return.  A panoramic view point along the way gives detailed descriptions of the mountains from Pikes to Longs and everything in between.  Be sure to bring helmet, lunch, bike pump.  This trail can also be ridden on hybrid style bike with wider tires, actual mtn. bike not necessary.  We ride west to east and surprisingly, our gentle uphill is eastbound with a downhill flow back to the west and Chatfield/Platte Valley drainage.
