The new Schoolhouse Loop at Heil Valley Ranch opened on June 7, 2019 and is Boulder County’s first beginner/kids skills trail. This easy 1-mile directional loop trail features 9 optional obstacle lines designed for kids and beginners on mountain bikes. Boulder County also added the new Corral parking lot for Schoolhouse and Overland Loop access with 20 new parking spaces. Still in the works is a condensed skills area near the parking lot.
BMA would like to thank Boulder County Parks & Open Space for adding beginner bike optimized trails to the Heil Valley Ranch system. These beginner trails are a great template for trail area design, combining beginner access with intermediate and advanced/intermediate trails.
