The majority of this particular trail is not paved. This portion is paved, I believe, due to its grade and subsequent erosion concerns. Wonderful lung and leg buster.

Something like halfway up. If only it looked as steep on 'film' as it really is .

I just never tire of this section of the Cherry Creek MUP out near Franktown.

Following internet research, I believed this to be a Ferruginous hawk rather than the red tail I originally thought. After further comparison of photos, I've no clue what kind of hawk it is.

Wondering about...

Further along the route: Castlewood Canyon State Park. Another of my early goal rides which eventually became a regular route.

I stopped for lunch at the turn around town on my ride today. I didn't bring a lock and ask how safe the area was. The lady told me to bring my bike inside. That's the first time Clyde has been in a bar.

Of course when you are on a ride you have to drink a couple of these to re-hydrate.

This was a nice part of the trail. There were signs all along this white fence saying that this was an old industrial site and for your own safety do not leave the trail. It smelled funny along there.

The last time I was asked for ID for alcohol I was 50. No, she didn't get a bigger tip. Her level of service left something to be desired.
