    I've heard the powerline trail in Highlands Ranch kicks a$$. But that's more suburban singletrack...

    Oh - and don't forget the singletrack at Cherry Creek Res. But I guess that's more suburban too.

    Dedise Park is technically Denver property so would that count?

    Seriously, unless you are looking for some urban trials/ freeride stuff, Denver, city proper, sucks for mountain biking. Living in North Denver, aka the Highlands, I would occasionally rally for some concrete missions. I always found it ironic that true concrete jungles like Philadelphia have better mountain biking in the city limits than anything in Denver.

    Once the heel is free there is no turning back my friends... As far as the Highlands Ranch stuff, it is ok for a quick fix or getting the kids on some singletrack and teaching rules of the trail. Only problem is you have to be a highlands ranch resident and have your rec card with you, they actually have someone there to check it. The East/West trail can be ridden by anyone but the "wilderness" area is for residents only DOHHHH!

    Aye, but you have to put up with all the right wing, tract distributing fundamentalists if you want to ride those trails. Totally not worth it considering what Cherry Creek and Highlands Ranch have to offer.

    Its true and crazy. Whissahickon park in Philly has really good mountain biking. I couldn't believe it, but I used to have a blast there when my ex-gf and I were on break from school. Some of those trails are actually pretty tough. Just watch out for the occasional homeless dude.

    It's funny, I didn't appreciate the abundance and fun level of northeast riding until I moved to Colorado...I miss dirt that isn't clay and roots!

    I started riding Whissahickon back in '90 when they closed the state parks to mountain biking, some reopened later. I had to drive into the city to mountain bike. Between Whis and the races at Belmont Plateau the city had a fun bike scene. I came out to Boulder for college, but went back for the occasional summer after college and was always impressed with how much fun Whissahicken was, you could easily do a 20-mile loop without leaving the city. Just had to wait until the fall cools enough before you could do any night rides: it had to be cold before the sketchy people would stop hanging in the park at night.

    Guys - downtown Denver is flatter than a f**kin' pancake. Why would anyone bother putting in the time and energy building $hitty flat trails when there is topography a mere 15-20 minutes away?

    1. It really sucks driving to trails.
    2. Creativity goes a long way.
    3. Topography can be flat, too.

    I'm just explaining why there aren't a bunch of trails in the urban jungle of Denver.

    Love my stash here in the Fort before the city paves them in the "Power Trail" extension.
