This is a 16 mile up and back on the Douglas County East/West Trail in the HIghlands Ranch area. It is classified as an easy trail by the MTB Project. The first several miles are gravel bike path  with a short paved section.  Then we get on some nice singletrack dirt trail that winds up through open space areas. The outward bound leg is mostly uphill, which means we get to go mostly downhill coming back.  We can decide how far we want to go on this trail. I am planning on about 8 miles up the trail which takes us to the top of the fun singletrack downhill.  The vertical ascent is about 800 ft and there is nothing very steep.

A mountain bike is recommended but this trail is probably ok for a gravel bike if you have agressive tread on the tires. This is a gravel bike path and easy singletrack dirt trail so knee and elbow pads are not needed but you are welcome to wear them for extra protection against falls. Let the trip leader know if you have any medical or other issues that they should be made aware of. Bring plenty of water and some snacks. I'll email everyone the day before the trip to update on weather conditions.


Sorry it is past the registration deadline for this event.
