NOTE: This is a new, but similar, course from the previous Humper MTB rides. Wolverton Loop and Firebox Singletrack are currently closed by the USFS, so we had to seek alternate routes and trails. From previous years, the course is shorter and less climbing.
This is how the Hardscrabble Humper was born!
This FREE self-supported and self-navigated 35-mile backcountry ride gives you a buffet-style serving of the mountain biking goods that Eagle, CO has to offer. Bring your sense of adventure, as the ride climbs up to 9,000 ft in the White River National Forest and then makes it’s way back down to the lunar and sage littered hills surrounding Eagle. Riders can plan for a 4-6 hour day on a 35-mile route that is 90% singletrack, 10% jeep roads, numerous steep punchy climbs, water crossings, a few short hike-a-bikes, white-knuckle descents, likely a run in with a cow or 2, and numerous fast flowy descents that’ll make your cheeks hurt you’re smiling so hard! Total amount of climbing in this adventure? About 6,000 ft over the 35-miles.
Trails you will ride include: Turnip Head, Pipeline, Firebox Rd / Dead Cow, Mike’s Night Out, Cat Walk, Easy Rider, Star Wars, Tick Alley, Yellow Chair, Abrams Ridge, Abrams Ridge Connector, LOV Connection, Bailey’s, 2nd Gulch, Mayer Gulch / Race Course Ripper.
