Pueblo Reservoir and Greenway Nature Center - Trail, Pueblo, Colorado

DESCRIPTION

This is a series of trails following creek beds, climbing buttes and hugging cliffs. The trails are covered with limestone fragments, so they're slick, but the downhills through the arroyos and canyons are fun.

ATTENTION ATTENTION ATTENTION!!

If you are a rider who likes to fly down a mountain, whip around turns and fly off ledges, then these trails are not for you!! Do not go on them because they will bore you half to death. These trails are for little kids who want to experience there first trail and have fun. It is though a good trail to take your grandparents on if your are already bored out of your mind and need something to do, other then that, you will not experience a thrill. Enough said, and always safe riding!

The people that gave these trails poor reviews must have been lost, he wasn't here. There are several trails with technical features that will make your spincter pucker. There are many smooth flowing miles of desert singletrack, arroyos, bridges, drop-offs and canyons to ride. These trails are not suited to ten speeds or your grandpa they are serious technical trails.

Customer Service

All of these trails are fun lower dog, the south shore trail, rock canyon, the duke log drop. You can pick up a trail map at the park headquarters trailhead off of highway 96. Explore!

I guess this would be an ok ride if you are only a teenager and did not have a car, so for people that like to ride all the time it sucks. One guy said "OK FOR GRANDPA ON HIS SUNDAY RIDE THOUGH." I would not put someone on this ride that I love. I live in Colorado Springs and knew that "Pablo" was flat as a 12 year old, but we put our head in our rear and rode it anyway. This ride would not have been fun if we did not come across the dead horse, or whatever it was. Do not waste you time.

Customer Service

None.

These trails are rough and slick because of all the limestone lying on them. However, if you want a quick thrill or a short ride, these are the perfect trails. They're always changing because the ground is soft, so you'll never see the same trail twice.

Customer Service

Go to the Greenway Nature Center where the cafe is. In the parking lot, there's a trailhead for a trail that ducks behind some buttes. Take this trail. On your left you'll see a trail going through a creek bed. Follow this for an extremely fast, extremely fun ride. You can also climb some of the buttes and fly down them. Watch out for gullies going across the trails.

For a long ride, take the paved trail west to the Pueblo Reservoir.

Once at the Nature Center head west by many ways, from the paved trails which hug the north side of the Arkansas river, to the demanding roller-coasting bluffs of pinon and loose shale to the north. Trails offshoot in every direction, and other trail users are wonderfully rare, (Pueblo's ace in the hole).
Between the Nature Center dinner cafe, Rock Canyon swimm beach, and the reservoir with amenities, an oasas is never more than an hour away. Not to mention the trails within Lake Pueblo State Park proper.
Any rider can find their level of difficulty; 3 in the shade (bug-spray for loiters), to technical 30 milers (sun-screen).

Customer Service

Not the same way twice.

Anything you can find. Pueblo is riddled with an interesting, connecting, in and outskirt, trail system.

I must admit a bias to this area being as it's pretty much all I've ever ridden. Something for everyone can be found here...from easy prairie rides to sick canyon runs and drops. Overall this is a great area and I have never been disappointed.

Customer Service

Any way you feel like...trails, trails, trails. to many mention.

There's riding for any skill level in this area. If you think there's no challenging stuff out here, you're not looking hard enough. All trails are fairly short, with no more than a few hundred vertical feet, but this isn't all bad because you can hit a very wide variety of trails in one ride. The easiest stuff is just gently doubletrack and singletrack that's either packed dirt or shale. There's a lot of intermediate singletrack with some steep sections and some rock/fairly technical sections. Most of the intermediate trails have advanced options that you may have to slow down and look for, because they're sometimes easy to miss. There are numerous jumps, including a double with a 20-30 foot gap. There are drops ranging from three to ten feet, mostly along established trail routes. There are numerous extremely technical sections comprised primarily of steep sections with large pieces of loose shale. An interesting note about this area is that all difficult obstacles have an easy bypass route directly to the right or left of the obstacle incase you aren't up to the challenge. The majority of trails are fairly popular with XC riders, but downhillers can be found on about any day on the more advanced trails practicing their skills. This area includes the downhill and cross-country courses from the 2001 Shale Rock Showdown (Mountain States Cup Series).

Customer Service

Start at the nature center, ride up any of the dirt trails to the west of the main parking lot. Lots of offshoots for any skill level.

Similar Products Used:

Liberty point- similar riding, but steeper, longer, and less technical. Squirrel creek- completely different riding, excellent extremely long downhill or stupidly long, tough climb.
