Garfield County bike trails: Wulfsohn, Glenwood Springs
April 10, 2018
Trail Talk: Wulfsohn trails range from really easy to fairly difficult. Nothing is too long, and trails are close to town for a quick ride. Add a little mileage and an easy warm-up by parking at the Jeanne Golay Trailhead and riding Olsen Trail over to Wulfsohn. With the newly opened Grandstaff Trail, you can create a loop by linking Wulfsohn, Olsen, Grandstaff, Jeanne Golay and Stevie Bob for 12.1 miles of fun.
Distance : 1.4 miles
The dirt: Probably the system's crown jewel, Defiance climbs up the hillside through oak brush with some tight turns, steep climbs and even a few rocks. Ride back on Stevie Bob, or add in Wulfsohn North for the whole experience.
