By all accounts, the Nipple Peak Loop is a stellar trail, but not for the faint-hearted. It requires advanced skills in climbing and descending. Covering 20.5 miles, this loop offers an elevation gain of roughly 3,000 feet, with the highest elevation topping off at 9,600 feet. Bring lots of sandwiches for this ride and expect to be out most of the day. The challenging climbs and incredibly fast and technical singletrack places this trail on equal par with any of Colorado's finest. Although area locals seem to prefer riding it clockwise, the loop can be done just as enjoyably counter clockwise. If ridden counter clockwise, the climbing comes early, but makes for more hike-a-bike sections up the steeper and rockier sections of trail. Also, riding it counter clockwise allows the rider to return to his or her vehicle via easier gravel roads. If ridden clockwise, the rider descends more technically challenging sections but will also have to contend with much of the climbing toward the end of the loop. This ride follows the loop clockwise. Terrain: Paved road, dirt road, doubletrack and singletrack - includes thick roots, loose rock, and steep inclines and offers soft, pine-needled surfaces, muddy sections, and sandy patches.
