Best all around trail in the area, if you live in the Springs area, this trail should be done at least once a month. If you are traveling through then Falcon should be on your to do list. Great climbs and super flowy descents. Trail is very well maintained and is usable pretty much the entire year weather permitting.

Probably easier to ride on fatter tires. 29 x2.10 tires didn't cut it very well on washouts going up hairpin turns.

Fun, varied trail. A lot of exposed areas, bring water.

Some sandy bits, some rocky-rooty bits, some switchbacks, but lots of fun. Good signage, too. Recommend going counter clockwise for a good time!
