Waterton Canyon - Colorado Trail

Its been about a year and a half since I've ridden Waterton Canyon, Colorado Trail, and Roxborough State Park. Waterton Canyon is the eastern end of the Colorado Trail. A popular route is to ride from the Waterton Canyon trailhead out to the Platte River and back. My brother and I did a portion of that ride on Saturday. We rode out on the Colorado Trail as far as time permitted, then turned around and added a bit of extra trail by dropping down a super fun, mostly downhill section (Trail 800) of Roxborough State Park.
