This trail is designed more with the downhiller in mind, but can be climbed as well. At the high point where you come on from the original Box o' Rox trail you start with some fast berms and smaller doubles and then moves onto a slide slope with plenty of up and downs, and A/B lines. With speed there are some doubles to clear. It then finishes with an A/B line with the harder lines having a rock garden, berm and a couple rock jumps.
After 700+ volunteer hours of trail building, Box o' Rox Trail at William Frederick Hayden Park is officially open, as of Sunday, June 4th! COMBA, Wheat Ridge Cyclery, REI, Tony Boone Trail Designs, and the City of Lakewood teamed up to build this bike-optimized connector trail offering flow, berms, jumps, drops, rock gardens, tech-flow, wall rides, and A/B lines. A very special thanks to REI for funding the project. And a big thank you to all our volunteers who came out to COMBA's trail work days to make Box o' Rox awesome!
