No. of Reviews: 7

This is a series of trails following creek beds, climbing buttes and hugging cliffs. The trails are covered with limestone fragments, so they're slick, but the downhills through the arroyos and canyons are fun.

Summary:
ATTENTION ATTENTION ATTENTION!!

If you are a rider who likes to fly down a mountain, whip around turns and fly off ledges, then these trails are not for you!! Do not go on them because they will bore you half to death. These trails are for little kids who want to experience there first trail and have fun. It is though a good trail to take your grandparents on if your are already bored out of your mind and need something to do, other then that, you will not experience a thrill. Enough said, and always safe riding!

Summary:
I guess this would be an ok ride if you are only a teenager and did not have a car, so for people that like to ride all the time it sucks. One guy said "OK FOR GRANDPA ON HIS SUNDAY RIDE THOUGH." I would not put someone on this ride that I love. I live in Colorado Springs and knew that "Pablo" was flat as a 12 year old, but we put our head in our rear and rode it anyway. This ride would not have been fun if we did not come across the dead horse, or whatever it was. Do not waste you time.

Recommended Route:
None.

Don't really know what to make of this review. Could be a sand bagging situation... Could be trying to keep the traffic count down.

The south shore trail system rocks. Especially in the winter, when it's generally 10 degrees warmer in Pueblo than elsewhere. That said, I wouldn't recommend this as a summer ride.

Lots of single track. Hours of riding. Outer limits is very flowy. And, get this, no horses aloud!

The canyons are fun, albeit short descents. There's plently of rocky, technical, droppy stuff to be found in them.

Check out the separate thread for the Pueblo Reservoir Canyons--they're all pretty much linked up.

Summary:
There's riding for any skill level in this area. If you think there's no challenging stuff out here, you're not looking hard enough. All trails are fairly short, with no more than a few hundred vertical feet, but this isn't all bad because you can hit a very wide variety of trails in one ride. The easiest stuff is just gently doubletrack and singletrack that's either packed dirt or shale. There's a lot of intermediate singletrack with some steep sections and some rock/fairly technical sections. Most of the intermediate trails have advanced options that you may have to slow down and look for, because they're sometimes easy to miss. There are numerous jumps, including a double with a 20-30 foot gap. There are drops ranging from three to ten feet, mostly along established trail routes. There are numerous extremely technical sections comprised primarily of steep sections with large pieces of loose shale. An interesting note about this area is that all difficult obstacles have an easy bypass route directly to the right or left of the obstacle incase you aren't up to the challenge. The majority of trails are fairly popular with XC riders, but downhillers can be found on about any day on the more advanced trails practicing their skills. This area includes the downhill and cross-country courses from the 2001 Shale Rock Showdown (Mountain States Cup Series).

Recommended Route:
Start at the nature center, ride up any of the dirt trails to the west of the main parking lot. Lots of offshoots for any skill level.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Liberty point- similar riding, but steeper, longer, and less technical. Squirrel creek- completely different riding, excellent extremely long downhill or stupidly long, tough climb.

Recommended Route:
not this one

Summary:
I must admit a bias to this area being as it's pretty much all I've ever ridden. Something for everyone can be found here...from easy prairie rides to sick canyon runs and drops. Overall this is a great area and I have never been disappointed.

Recommended Route:
Any way you feel like...trails, trails, trails. to many mention.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
None I can think of...
