Iron Mountain Loop

We had another great ride this Sunday on the Iron Mountain Loop. Attending the ride were Oli, Lester, Jeff F, and two new faces on a Bike Carson Ride; Gary from Stagecoach, and Rob from CC.

Gary, who lives across the highway from the trail, is now the mountain biker living nearest this loop. My hope is that he likes it enough to occasionally give it a little TLC. Rob from CC is a friend who I haven’t seen in awhile. The last time I saw Rob he was telling me he was going to purchase a new mountain bike and start riding again. Well the new bike is a Specialized Epic, and I was pleased he came out to ride with us. I hope they both come out and ride with us again soon.

The Iron Mountain Loop comprises three trails: Amy’s Trail, Bench Trail, and Black Hawk Mine Trail. We add two miles of double-track to begin and end the loop (for warm up, cool down, socializing, and increased mileage) for a total of 14.5 miles.

This area provides great winter and early spring mountain biking. When the trails in Carson are too wet to ride, the Iron Mountain Loop is usually dry. Look for a trail map soon on the Trails & Rides page. Continue reading “Iron Mountain Loop”
