the trail is fast and exciting. If you use your brakes at all you are killing the ride. Sit back hang on and look out for the Bull Moose that I ran into.

Summary:
This is an awesome little candy track through a lodgepole pine forest. For those of you who haven't ridden through lodgepole, it's a treat because of the smootheness and the etheric, peaceful vibe. Due to the dearth of single track in the area, it's like a breath of fresh air. If you do nothing else in Winter Park, do this trail.

Recommended Route:
There's a whole network of trails here and their all good, though not much single track. Plan your route so that you ride a logging rode for the uphill and hit the zoom on the downhill.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
The Fraser valley is one of the most scenic areas within 90 minutes of Denver. Unfortunately, most of the mountain biking is logging roads, which makes the drive hard to justify if you're a single track junkie.

Summary:
One of the best loops in the valley. Cross the bridge over the creek and start up Flume, which is a nice rolling trail until you hit 159 where you'll go left. Be prepared for good climb that lasts a couple miles. At the top of the hill you'll see a wooden fence on your left, and so begins zoom. sit back, lay off the brakes and have yourself a rolling good time. *****. Down zoom till you hit chainsaw (hard left), which is a great rolling trail that leads you back to creekside and the starting point.

Recommended Route:
Flume - Zoom - Chainsaw

Other recommended trails in the same area:
uuuh, everything.

Reviewed by: Andy , from Fort Collins, Colorado

Summary:
As soon as you start on this trail it's a fast, wide, long downhill with a couple of technical sections (mainly ruts and washes). This trail connects to the Chainsaw trail at the bottom. Since most of the trails in the Fraser Valley are approximately two to six miles in length and connect to a couple of common forest roads, it's easy to piece together an easy six miler or an epic thirty plus mile ride without touching the same piece of dirt twice. Carry a map and a jacket. Enjoy. It's a classic.

Recommended Route:
From the bottom of Tipperary Creek trail go across the fire road towards the Flume trailhead - keep going up the fire road. It's a gradual climb and should be no problem for beginners with moderate fitness. The trailhead's about three miles up on the left. From Winter Park you can access this trail by heading up Vasquez Creek and climbing up to the top of Elk Creek road.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Stop at Higher Grounds Coffee Shop, Powder Tools or Ski Depot and buy a copy of DIRT GUIDE. Check off the rides one by one. It's all good.

Summary:
Zoom is one of many trails you can link togther in the area, including Chainsaw, Creekside, Flume, Twin Bridges ... you get the idea. Ride DOWN Zoom for a fun fast decent. That mean paying your dues on the road climbing to the trailhead.

Recommended Route:
Like above, or take forest service road from either Safeway or St Louis Creek Camp ground to the top.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Take your pick. Winter Park is like a choose your adventure book. Too many options, too little time.
