Beginner Loop

Beginner Loop Professional Review and Guide

"This trail has a great downhill section that makes for a fun, fast ride, so much so that the downhill portion of the trail is called Viagra. Of course, you have to pay for that downhill with a bit of a climb back to the trailhead. However, on the way, the trail offers great views of the Red Rocks Escarpment and you may even see a burro or two.

Beginner Loop is a fun ride popular with many mountain bikers in the area. The majority of the ride is a great downhill section that you can take as slow or as fast as you feel comfortable. Of course, all that downhill riding does come with a price. Once you complete that portion, you’ll have a gradual climb all the way back to the trailhead. Still, the climb is not difficult and the downhill section is worth the price of admission."
