The Backside is what I call my local trail system that I can pedal from home to and access, it's literally a mile up the dirt road from my house. Thank God for local trails, ones that you ride a million times. I'm sure this trail has a number or something to identify it but I've always called it the Backside Trails because it's on the backside of our mountain. It's nice being able to just head out from the house, not drive anywhere, you can ride it as an out and back or as two different longer loops. It's also really peaceful and traveled infrequently but used consistently. I've seen a bear on this trail as well as pheasants, rabbits and dear and I've seen mtn. lion tracks as well. This trail has a way of soothing my nerves, it's north facing mostly so it stays cool in the dead heat of the summer and it has super views of the surrounding mtns and the Divide. It has enough technical moves to keep you happy but not worked, well the first and last section that I have to do to get home, which is about a mile, is tough climbing and will work you but also make you a stronger technical climber. Descending it is a full on DH run, yea! Sometimes I wish it wasn't the last piece/climb up to my house but I'm more grateful to have it then not. I can ride all the way beyond Peak to Peak on dirt road and trail if I wanted to, but I mostly do anything from 1 hour to a 2 hour ride on this trail network.
