Eagle

Always looking for something new. There's a treasure chest awaitin and all you gotta do is look around and you'll find gold. Mine is adventure, seeing new places, riding new trails. Some don't get it, all they want to do is ride, see, feel what is familiar. Me, I'll take a chance. Explore the unknown. Then maybe, just maybe I'll get to show others whats behind the veil.

My explorations took me to Eagle, CO. I heard rumors of a grand trail system there and what I found and only covered maybe an eighth of, was grand. My spiritual gold.

The lower trails reminded me of a mix of Hartman Rocks (Gunnison) mixed with a bit of the Lunch Loops out in Grand Junction

P1020294

P1020295

while the upper trails were more of the Alpine forest nature mixed with a few mountain meadows and just a hint and taste of the lush forest

Circumstances didn't allow me to "explore" with you this time- but that looks good. so familiarity had to do........

Looks like a good network. I love exploring new places...some are good rides, some you wonder why you even brought your bike, but in the end it's the adventure that will be remembered.

BTW, any places to camp nearby?

Hey Goat! How many miles did you put in there? It looks great. My birthday is coming up and I'm looking for a good place to get around 30-50 miles. Was gonna do Buff Creek, but the Hundo is going on next week. So now thinking either Pueblo or Eagle. Thanks!

Jeremy, I put in about 30 miles as my time allowed and I'd say I hit maybe 30% of whats there. Plenty of trails there to get the mileage you want.
