Super Magic Bus, Nederland, CO

In the spirit of the back-to-school season I headed up to Nederland to ride Super Magic Bus on a late summer day.

At the front of the ride is a bit of descent overlooking peaks to the west, and then a relatively gentle climb for a few miles. After that, it’s fun flowey downhill through really tight trees. On one occasion my handlebars whacked a tree and I nearly went off the bike.  

At one point I passed over a section that had odd and unofficial signage about potential mercury tailings in the soil.

The Super Magic Bus

This trail has an old school bus off the path, and as I got closer to the bottom of the descent I wondered where it was. Then I saw the glint of yellow out of the corner of my eye, and headed over to check it out. The bus is near an old abandoned shack in the middle of the woods. It’s actually a little creepy (I just watched Blair Witch this past weekend).
