The joy of this ride is exquisite, tight singletrack, rhythmically flowing, and breath-taking views of Ten Mile Range. It's advisable to step off the bike to admire these views, as riding off trail may be quite uncomfortable.
A middle chain-ring warm-up on Tiger Rd. as pavement becomes dirt becomes Forest Service road. The Colorado Trail Crosses the Middle Fork of the Swan. Here begins 17 + miles of sweet singletrack. Save some energy for one 2.75 mile climb, shortly followed by 6.5 miles following downhill. There are multiple escape routes in case of weather, or simply having too much fun. Ride length will be 25 miles, with two options for riders wanting more. Minimal technical ability is required, though attention to the trail is required.
Burgers, beer, soda provided at the end. Family members welcome.
