Saturday: This ride is almost all single track and is one of my favorites. It has runs through aspen and ponderosa forest from the top of Holiday Mesa all the way to the very tip on the south end of the mesa over-looking the tunnels. The views on this ride will blow your socks off!
Most of the first half of this ride is fast flowing smooth single track.
Parts of this ride run along narrow shelves on the rim of large canyons.
We'll have a superb view from a high point right after one of
The route follows the rim of the mesa on the left in this shot all the
way to the end of the mesa.
At the end of the mesa we will be directly above the old railroad tunnels
on FR 376.
We'll follow the cliffs west and get even more view points as we begin our gradual climb back to the top.
The 2nd half has lots of great variety as well.
Including a beautiful single track up the deep, lush, Cebollita Canyon.
This is just a sample of what you'll see on this ride. Don't miss it.
