If climbing up the side of a mountain on a bike is your thing, this trail is for you! You get about 7.5 miles of uphill riding, but it’s not as horrible as it sounds. You get a lot of switchbacks, and flats in between the climbs.
There are a few nice stops along the way to take in the views but it’s a really good workout getting up there.
Its covered with rocks and technical climbs but that’s par for the course in Colorado.
