Clear trails for the most part, but may run into occasional puddles or stretches of muddy areas. It is encouraged to go through puddles, and not around them. Also to turn back on long muddy stretches that damage or widen trails.

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.

  • heavy_braker December 15, 2018 at 11:49 amI would stay away unless solidly frozen. Lots of mud and ice at the bottom. Deep snow drifts toward the top.
  • 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.
  • pneisen May 15, 2018 at 11:29 amRiding so good after the little bit of rain we got.
  • WhiteWizard March 8, 2018 at 9:26 amLower 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.
