Fun mostly singletrack trail west of Morrison, Colorado. This is a fun intermediate difficulty mountain bike trail west of Morrison, Colorado. It is mostly a rolling trail with a moderate amount of climbing. Technically it is an intermediate trail with an occasional short advanced technical sections thrown in. Directions to trail: From Denver, make your way to Morrison. This is a cute little town and a great place to have some food/beer after the ride (i.e. The Morrison Inn). Take Highway 74 west for about 4 miles. I started my ride at Little Park so I could get a little more mileage in. Most people will start at the main parking lot (POI #5). The trail described is from Little Park. If you want to make this an even longer ride, continue on Parmalee Gulch Road after POI #19 and follow signs for Mount Falcon Park. You will be at the uppermost parking lot of Mount Falcon and you can do the Mount Falcon trail.
