Going Counter Clockwise:
You will be riding through a nice valley on black top that will turn to graded dirt. Once you start to head East you will come to USFS sign (Trailhead). From there the conditions are always changing depending on weather and prior erosion.
Continue on to get spectacular views of large open meadows. You will enjoy 60 miles of some really nice open land.

Feel free to explore more then the GPX tracks, just be cautious and obey all USFS signs. Trails can turn very hard in no time.
Trails in Colorado and in the West in general can become very very hard to ride if it has rained as the ground turns into a slick type of snot that just sticks to everything. Expect to slide, and not have good traction (road tires wouldn't be advised if it has rained, I would recommend TK80, D606 style of tires).
You will still come across some muddy spots and the route will have ruts. Any difficulty spots are short and you might need to help others in your group to get through them.
This route was designed for the BMW GS, KTM 950+, Triumph Tigers, and other large Adventure bikes. Designing a route knowing YOUR skill level, and your particular bikes ability is hard and thus you need to always be making decisions for yourself if you can push on or need to turn around. There is no shame in turning around.
