Can be as hard as you want to make it. The closest thing to Moab you will find for many miles. There is single track, double track.

Summary:
Bring your bag of tricks. This place has everything and will make you use every bit of it. Bring the SUP also. The Arkansas point campground is a great home base for 2-3 days of riding and paddling. Lots of stickers and goat heads in camp, so bring the dogs bootys also.

Recommended Route:
Skull canyon, up and down, is really fun.
Sidewinder is nice.
Freeride is a trip.
Broken hip is scarey.

Summary:
The duke is the best when you make it to the top and ride back down!!! There are some fun trails over there, just make sure you have good brakes or you could be in trouble in some parts.

Recommended Route:
If you want to keep going, then turn left onto the double track. Make sure you go down past the dip and make your next right. After that, you will hit a trail called skull valley or something of that nature. This trail is recommended for experienced riders because there are drop offs and cliff sides and all sorts of fun things. I love this trail because it gives you one epic downhill rush. If you follow this trail, you will end up back at the south arena. Have fun and safe riding!!

Summary:
Lotsa different routes to be had, something for everybody. From the looks of it this area would be quite nasty when when, given by the number of postholes made by the equestrians and snake trails made by the mtbs. Love the sound of my wheels over the pieces of broken limestone, sounds like plates breaking. I gave 3 stars for difficulty and aerobics, as there is everything available and lots to offer. Seems like you could piece together any kind of ride you wanted from a long XC course to short DH technical stuff. Very fun place to ride in early March. I imagine the middle of July and August would be pretty hot.

Recommended Route:
From the Arkansas Point campground, we did the South Shore Trail to Route 96 (flat and wide open, probably nasty when wet) to Outer Limits (a real spaghetti of sweet, flowy, single track) to Pedros Point (great view) to Inner Limits (newer narrow single track with some grunty short climbs) to Driftwood (where'd all that wood come from?) and back to the South Shore Trail. 18 miles in 2 or so hours with 3 hours of trail time. We stopped and looked around a lot.

Summary:
Pueblo is known to the Colo Springs guys as their Fruita. Lower in Altitude, less snow, so ridable most of the year. But check if there's been snow. The mud is clay and sticks to everything. Sucks when it's muddy. check this site first http://www.lakepueblotrails.org/ then check MTBR front range for any updates. It's a great 3-4 hr ride on twisty single track. It's a single speed heaven. 34x20. Good endurance training. The canyons (if they're dry) add some technical stuff. Worth the trip if most front range trails are covered in snow.

Summary:
First trip down to Pueblo and I wasn't disappointed. South side of the reservoir is where the best riding is with about 35-40 miles of single/double track configurations. On a Friday morning I saw only two other bikers in the south areas until I was headed back to the car through South Shore. Easily ridden by even the greenest of riders (with the exceptions made for the DH canyon runs). KeyHole Canyon was a fun challenge worthy of doing over and over, short but technically sweet!!

Recommended Route:
From Arkansas Point:
Conduit (East)
Duke (following 96)
Rodeo/Rodeo Ridge
Quatro Sinko
Keyhole Canyon
Pedro's Point to Pronghorn
Voodoo Trail to Voodoo Loop (counter clock)
back Pronghorn to Waterfall
South Shore back to parkinglot

Duke/Rodeo/South Shore area has 12-15 different DH runs that can be looped through Rollercoaster and the Arkansas Pt. trail!!!!!!

Other recommended trails in the same area:
MOAB Brand Loop, parts of GJ lunch loops, Loma/Kokopelli trail
