Summary:
Its a pretty good, not great, trail. There are a few trails that branch off and run parallel to it that are fun to ride as well. Its a fun, fast curvy(?) down but always watch out for other bikers, but more likely hikers and/or runners.

Recommended Route:
Park on Cheyenne Canyon and ride up past reservoir. When riding up, I always criss cross until close to the top, then bomb straight down Chutes trail to the reservoir.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Capt. Jacks, Columbine, St. Mary's.......

Summary:
OVERRATED!!! All the locals love it but i thought it was kinda lame. The downkill is, at best, ok and the uphill is pretty easy until the last 200 ft or so- this is where it gets semi-challenging. It is littered with hikers and runners so watch out for 'em. If you want somethin better, go 2 Captain Jacks or Palmer Park.

Recommended Route:
Skip The Chutes, do not pass downhill, do not collect.... just go to Captain Jacks or Pipeline....

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Capn Jacks, Jones DH, Pipeline

Summary:
For experienced riders: OVERRATED
For Beginners: It will get your jollies off.
If your used 2 places like Garden of the Gods, then youll love it. If you ride Palmer Park and Cap'n jacks, dont waste your time. The jumps are small and there are hardly any rocks or branches or other obstacles to manuver around. The downhill is mediocre at best and the uphill is a joke until the last 100 feet.

Recommended Route:
Up and down. Repeat if you are really bored.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Pipeline, Jones Downhill, Captain Jacks, Palmer Park (not as much uphill)

Summary:
What a blast!!! Bobsled run type trail with lots of banked turns & plenty of kickers to catch a little air on. Great after work ride or warm-up climb on the way to Cap'n Jacks, and very sweet icing on the cake after coming down Jack's.

This trail has only 2 faults. The first being its popularity, and the other being that it is not 4 times as long. The first can be remedied by riding during off peak hours and learning to share with other bikers & hikers. The second can be remedied by linking with other trails in Cheyenne Canyon or Stratford open space for a great loop. Or just ride it, turn around and ride it again & repeat until you get sick of it. ( May take a half dozen or so repetitions, because this trail is FUN!!! )

Recommended Route:
Park at Stratford Open Space. Ride short trail to the west that links to dirt road. Ride uphill until you see the well-marked trailhead to the right. 1.5 miles of non-technical climbing. Turn around & ride down, or link up with Captain Jack's/Buckhorn network.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Cap'n Jack's, Buckhorn, Palmer Park, Limbaugh Canyon, Monument Fire Center, Stratford Open Space

Summary:
Good all-around ride with lots of variety if the "downhill" sections are included. Here's a clue for the guy pleading with other riders to not ride up the chute: the trail is not "for" downhillers exclusively. Where does he think he is, Whistler? He couldn't have posted a more ignorant review with a more clear cut example of the kind of attitude that is resulting in trail closures across the country if he tried. The guy riding uphill while staring at his pedals isn't the problem, it's inconsiderate thrill-seeking clowns like him who think everyone else is obligated to adjust what they're doing to suit him. If he truly understood what it means to share the trail with other users, he never would have posted his asinine rant. As it is, he's a menace to other trail users and himself and stands a good chance of finding himself on the wrong end of a reckless endangerment or wrongful death lawsuit someday.

Recommended Route:
As described
