Directions to trail
Getting to the Mount Falcon upper lot is easier than it sounds because there are signs everywhere. Take C-470 to US 285 S. Continue on 285 S until the Indian Hills exit. Turn right at the Indian Hills exit which is also S. Parmalee Gulch Rd. From there, turn right on Picutis Rd. Then turn left on Comanche Rd. Then a slight right on Oh-Kay Rd, another slight right on to Picutis Rd again, a slight left at Nambe Rd, a slight right on Cameyo Rd W., and then continue on Mount Falcon Rd. There are two parking lots up here, in the summer they can both be very full.

PLEASE yield to uphillers and hikers. Keep the Mount Falcon trails open to bikes by being courteous.
Elevation at parking lot
Mount Falcon has something for everyone. Starting from the lower parking a rider can test their endurance and fortitude with a long and unrelenting climb. Once up top there are a plethora of fun and fast trails, with good technical maneuvers. An alternative to doing the long climb is to start from the top parking lot and ride the upper trails (see below). Along the way a person can stop at the ruins of the Walker mansion and overlook Red Rocks and the city of Denver.
Old Ute - A fun and fast little loop with some great technical challenges.
Parmalee - A slightly longer loop with a good amount of smaller water bar drops on the way down and the way up. Fast and fun and worth your time once up top.
Castle trail - An ass-kicker when ridden from the bottom parking lot. The climb seems to last forever. It's not too terribly technical besides the water bars at the bottom and a few rock sections nearer the top.
