Washington Gulch Road
Best place for lunch in CB.....on the 403, roast beef sandwiches and fritos. Mmmmmmmm.
Scott veered back home after the 403, so I was left solo to ride the 401. It is easy to see why this is labeled as the must-do, classic trail for CB. I was surprised to see how many people shuttle this ride. In fact, the entire time I was in CB, I kept seeing the same cars/people drive to the trailheads. Understandably so at times because of the lack of connecting singletrack.
I met a few people while riding the upper sections. Including a couple from Denver (shown below in white on trail).
Although as I got lower, they seemed to all veer off to Gothic Rd. Not sure if it was the rain storm that scared them away, but in any case, I got to ride the lower section without seeing anyone.
I headed home on the contoured, fast Gothic Rd just before a rain storm hit.
