This is a hike-a-bike for sure.This is a very popular hikers trail. It does become rideable after the first mile or so.
I suggest the right turn below the lake to explore the route to the divide.It is awsome single track,but becomes to steep to ride up. It is all rideable down and great.
From the junction on up to the lake is maybe to steep to ride and full of hikers.
This trail is a must see once. Packed on weekends.
If you want to give mtn.biking a bad name, this is the place. If you enjoy scaring the hell out of old ladies, it is easy sneaking up behind them on the downhill,be loud and patient.Let them discover you first.
Sorry, this is a trail review,not a lecture.
If your coming up from Denver,Silverplume south is better riding.
Save Herman for when you need to take your mom for a hike.
I`m giving this trail only one flaming homosapein because between the hikers and the hiking it is hard to find a pace.
