Trail is good to go, but expect dry, dusty and loose trail surface and/or occasionally deep sandy areas.

Freestone Ridge is popular with bikers and joggers because it is a nice option for mid-length rides and longer runs. It climbs from Military Reserve up to the middle foothills. As a downhill, it is scorching fast, with wide open sight lines. As an uphill, it feels like interval training, with steep scrambles followed by flatter plateaus. Often looped with Sidewinder.

  • pneisen June 13, 2018 at 11:17 amLoose and sandy. Riding like late summer right now.
  • bewsurf22 June 8, 2018 at 7:11 amRiding fast, but loose in the corners and it has already started to dry out a bunch. Watch out for ruts due to the rain storms we have had. Can make riding fast precarious.

  8. WhiteWizard says:

    Lower portion of the trail is in great condition, gets wet with snow patches around 4000′. Turned back at the flats prior to the climb to fat tire trail junction.

  9. ramihz says:

    The top 1/3 has long stretches of snow, and the steep bit before Fat Tire is icy

  10. AllezXC says:

    Complete with all the usual ruts and one easily avoidable puddle. The lower half is excellent

  11. kimlyons says:

    Just the one puddle in the usual spot…get some!

  12. olliemule says:

    Primo conditions with the exception of one puddle.

  13. kimlyons says:

    One small puddle is all
