fast, smooth singletrack got me really excited. I could have done two laps easily had I conserved a little bit more energy for the climb on the second half of the loop.

This trail, although very short, is absolutely fantastic. Although it is rated an easy ride, this trail can do you some serious damage if you make a wrong move, last year my girlfriend broke 4 ribs on this trail, and she was going slow. The first section of this trail can be extremely fast, but leaves NO room for error, plus you always have to be prepared not to collide with hikers. Highly recommended for a few fun loops, I manage a loop in about 25 minutes, and usually do 3 loops. This trail is shut to bikers on Wednesday and Saturday (foot traffic only) If you are in Boulder, then this is a hell of a sweet loop. Ride Safe.

This loop is really fun! It's not too much of a challenge but just enough of a physical workout and fast ride to send you around the loop more than once!

The trail was in good shape for mountain biking. I especially liked the Link Trail (links Canyon Rd to the main trail). It's 2-3x harder than the main trail itself. Watch out for pinch flats!

The connector from Boulder Canyon is now open. It's about a mile long, and starts just below (east of) the tunnel on Boulder Canyon, crosses the road to the water filtration plant and comes out just east of the trailhead. Note that now the connector is open, Betasso is closed to bikes on Wednesdays and Sundays, and the one way restriction has been reinstated. The connector is significantly more difficult than the loop - steeper and with some interesting switchbacks.
