Deckers Loop

July 12 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm

Always a favorite and a fine relaxing scenic riverside tour.  There is 5 miles of easy gravel and a a similar stretch of rough pavement.  The canyon and the rivers are best seen when not hammering.

Ride starts at Reynolds Park paved parking on Foxton Rd about 5 miles down from U.S. 285, coasts down Foxton Rd. to the North Fork, then loops 40 miles counterclockwise via Buffalo Creek followed by a long climb, descends to the S. Platte and a refueling stop in Deckers, then follows the S. Platte to it’s confluence with the North Fork, and back to Foxton Rd.

Short option is 20 miles of out and back along the North Fork.
