Fun, intermediate mountain bike ride about 20 minutes west of Denver, near Lakewood, Colorado. This trail is fairly easy with a good climb and intermediate descents.

One of my favorite hiking areas close to Denver. Decent opportunity for elevation gain (especially if you take the fire road from the West side - that seems pretty steep). You can connect numerous trails into the distance you want . . . and loop and loop and loop.

Popular with mountain bikers, but 9/10 of them are extremely polite. 1/10 bikers should be reminded that they are supposed to yield to hikers, equestrians, deer, porcupines, voles . . . you get the idea.

Note -- the 3,000' plus elevation gain is if you do every single trail (thus descend and climb). From trailhead to highest point is about 930' or so.
