New Trail in Superior (looking SE) - Photo Credit: 303Cycling
With all the talk and news about trail access and new trails in Boulder, Superior is quietly becoming a great biking town with out alot of fan fair. If you have not seen the bike park they are building you should check it out.
A new trail, in old town Superior, opened recently and I finally got a chance to ride it today. It completes what is known as the Dirty Bismarck (or Dirty Morgul). Basically a dirt version of the Morgul Bismarck. The Dirty Bismarck consists of the following trails:
- Mayoffer-Singletree Trail
- Meadowlark Trail
- Coalton Trail
- High Plains Trail
- Greenbelt Plateau
- Community Ditch
- Cowdrey Draw
The new trail starts at the corner of 3rd Avenue and Thomas St in Superior and heads south toward the Colition Trail (McCaslin and Coalition Drive). The trail is super smooth and today I road my road bike on the trail. I didn't get an exact length but if I were to guess its probably a couple miles long.
I have now completed the Dirty Bismarck loop. I parked at the new trail head at the round-about at McCaslin and Coalition Drive. The complete loop is almost 15 miles with an elevation gain of close 1000 feet. I am glad I used my mountain bike because a few sections are fairly rocky. Check out the trail and let us know what you think.
