Hagerman Tunnel Trail
Officially called the "Colorado Midland-Centennial Trail," this 6-mile lollipop loop is better known by the now-collapsed tunnel at its end. It begins as a rocky creekbed which stays wet well into late summer. Biking up the creek, the trail quickly dries up, and bikers can now focus their attention of the dramatic peaks and alpine lakes dotting the area. The loop ends at Hagerman Tunnel, where steam trains once used to cross the Divide from Leadville into the Roaring Fork Valley. On the way back, bikers can go visit the collapsed buildings in the ghost town of Douglas. Running almost entirely above 11,000', this high alpine trail rewards riders with unforgettable scenery and history.
Look for the large dirt parking lot and wooden sign for the Centennial Trail.
