Make a reservation online, or give us a call. A credit card is required to hold spots; we do not run this card, so payment is required upon arrival. You are required to be 15 minutes before any departure time. Be considerate of others and do not be late. We will not wait for you. On busy weekends be even earlier to ensure smooth loading and on time departure.
An early 7 A.M. shuttle can be requested but requires at least 5 riders. We need to leave at 7:00 to be back for our 8:00 shuttle, so if the group is not ready at 7:00, we will not go until 8:00. Please be organized and ready to go.
This is a great downhill ride for a moderately skilled rider. Fooses begins about five miles into the Crest ride. The first mile of this descent is very steep and rocky; so ride it if you can. Fooses Creek is the shortest option and ends on Highway 50 west of Maysville. A road ride is required to get back to Poncha Springs.
Green's Creek is seven miles from the Monarch Pass parking lot and is more of a downhill specific ride. Green's ends in Maysville on the frontage road and requires a road ride back to Poncha Springs.
This is also a fantastic ride but ends on the West side of Monarch Pass in Sargents. A shuttle may be required to go back to Monarch Pass. Agate Creek Trail begins 10 miles into the ride on the Crest Trail.
This is the most common ride and also makes for the longest ride. At the bottom of this seven mile descent you will have the option of continuing along the Rainbow Trail or bailing out on Silver Creek Road 201. If you decide to do the Rainbow Trail, be sure to have plenty of water and snacks. This section can wear you out after riding the Crest because of some "sprint climbs" out of drainages.
