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. You can start your ride at Little Park but most people will start at the main parking lot. The trail described is from Little Park. If you want to make this an even longer ride, continue on Parmalee Gulch Road 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.Show more
