The Dyke Trail features sections beautiful singletrack through a mix of conifer and aspen forest. The Dyke Trail has several steep sections of riding that most everyone will have to walk and a few creek crossings requiring a good heave-ho to get up the far side.
The Dyke trail can become way more technical if it is muddy, verging on an epic and not in the positive sense, so riders are wise to consider trail conditions as they get deeper into the ride. The Dyke trail is about 6 miles long and if riders would rather not do a shuttle, there is an additional 9 miles of dirt road to crank out, which can be fun as long as the roadway is not too dusty.
6 miles of singletrack and 9 miles of road.

While riding any trail system it is a great idea to include a repair kit and first aid kit. The Dyke Trail is a multi-use trail and hikers, horseback riders and other trail users may be seen along the way. Please be considerate on the trails and understand right of way protocol. The Dyke Trail is located in high elevation mountains and can experience sudden weather shifts, so riders should bring appropriate warm layers in anticipation of this.
