Heil Ranch Review and Report

It's rocky... really rocky. This is another Classic Lyons, CO ride. It doesn't dry out as fast as Rabbit or Hall because of almost 100% tree cover, but it's not too bad.
You'll find a basic lolly-pop configuration, the out and back is all uphill, and the loop (can be ridden both ways) is pretty much up and down - just small climbs and downhills. As I mentioned before - it's pretty darn rocky, so bring suspension and big tires. It's not like baby-heads or loose scree. It's almost all embedded rocks with square edges. Yup - you know how those feel. Riding back down the loop is a pretty good time - nice long DH run with perfect turns (although rocky). Not as long as Hall, but not as crowded either.
As of 3/12/07 - the trails are in perfect condition and 100% ridable. No snow drifts or big puddles. Please don't ride around the puddles - it'll widen the singletrack.

Today's Words of Wisdom -
lube it and love it, take care of your bike or it won't take care of you
