Description

Officially dedicated 9/15/2021 to local hero, Adam Palmer, who originally conceived and marked the path, Adam's Way is a fun singletrack connecting the outer Eagle Ranch loops (Riddle) to the start of Hardscrabble Mountain Rd. (413) near Brush Creek Rd., allowing access to northern Eagle trails via 3 Sisters with minimal road riding.

Ridden from Riddle, Adam's Way rides smoothly and mostly flat across the mesa before cresting at a lookout point with a great view of surrounding properties on Brush Creek and the northern Eagle trail area. It then drops down to the valley floor via a series of nice, moderate switchbacks and undulating hillside riding before a flat runout to Hardscrabble Mountain Rd.

Although the switchbacks are a blast going down, it rides nicely in both directions if you don't mind the climb, and there is good visibility for any oncoming traffic most of the way.
