Overview

The Foothills Loop will take you along the ridgeline and then on a fun 2-mile downhill section that will put a huge smile on your face. This is followed by a decent climb back to the ridge where you meet a fast-paced singletrack to the parking lot.

Description

Ride north along the ridge along the Road Apple Rally on Kinsey, which is a slightly uphill but fast trail. Make a right off the ridge onto the Seven Sisters and enjoy the fast downhill sections with whoops and small jumps. From Seven Sisters, you'll then climb up the Bong Rock Trail back to the ridge and finish with Rigor Mortis. Rigor Mortis is a fast and slightly downhill, tight singletrack that leads back to the parking lot.

First time to ride. It's a fun trail and flowy with no snow (coming from Pagosa Springs, CO).
