Summary:
This is just a flat, wide, rocky Jeep track basically. Pretty darn boring. Only good for connecting Doudy Draw to Marshall Mesa. Its one saving grace is its beautiful views of the foothills.

Recommended Route:
Only use it to connect Doudy Draw and Marshall Mesa.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Doudy Draw, Springbrook, Walker Ranch.

Summary:
Looks like nobody has reviewed this trail in four years & my understanding is that there has been some work done on it so things may have changed. This is an easy, EASY trail and it's also a really fun little ride that you can do on a lunchbreak if you're close enough. There's really no adrenaline to be had here but some nice scenery & a tour of at least three ecotones. A lot of people here don't seem to understand proper trail manners so please set a good example by keeping your wheels on the tread, stopping for other users & riding only when the trail is dry. Also note that this is an off-leash park so you will see roaming poochies.

Recommended Route:
Park in the main lot & ride counter-clockwise. For a little challenge, take the spur that heads south to the top of the mesa.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Every ride is a good ride. Turn off your computer and get on your bike!

Summary:
Unless you are a beginner, this trail is total bore. It's the perfect example of Boulders idea of a mountain bike trail: rocky, wide, flat (except for the short entrance climb) and short.

Recommended Route:
not recommended

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Walker, White and Hall Ranch

Summary:
Well, I must say I agree with TJ totally, this trail is a joke. IMBA what are you thinking? If you want to worry about trail access issues try getting a quality ride in within riding distance from Boulder, they do not exist. The only trail worth riding to once in a while is Walker, and it's not even that great in my opinion. Anyways, back to this trail, it is about as flat as a road/trail can be without being downhill, it is full of small bumps/rocks that an 80 year old in a wheelchair could go over. If you can't ride this trail then you should not be on a bike, one positive thing about the trail is that it's got awesome scenery, so if you want to take the family out for a ride and see scenery then this is for you, if you are anything above an intermediate rider then this trail will probably be pretty boring.

Recommended Route:
out to eldorado and back

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Hall, Sourdough, White ranch

Summary:
Pathetic. Utterly pathetic. It amazes me that Boulder is still considered a bike town. No trails in the mountain park system is open to mtb riding! IMBA what are you doing? You can't even open trails in your backyard!

Recommended Route:
None. The hikers dictate things here.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
There are none
