Mayhem Gulch, Golden, CO

Today I geared up to ride Centennial Cone between Golden, CO and Idaho Springs, CO in Clear Creek Canyon.  I started out on Mayhem Gulch.

However, when I got to the top of Mayhem Gulch I found that the loop was closed.  There are wildlife habitat restrictions until June 15.

No worries, I got to ride Mayhem Gulch for my first time, and what a fun ride it is!  The trail is a perfect 8% grade which makes it easy to climb, and just enough decline to get a fast descent on.  I look forward to coming out later in the year and ride the whole Centennial Cone loop.
