Hermit Park Bike trail now OPEN! At least half of it anyway. Rode an out and back and went 7 miles. All of the volunteers did an amazing job constructing the trail. The trail follows mostly gentle grade and is not technical at all. There are some rocky sections.
We parked at the bottom parking lot and rode up the trail to the Kruger Rock junction and back. It is mostly uphill on the way to the junction and fun gentle downhill on the way back. An easier and quicker route would be to park at the bottom parking lot, then ride the road up to Kruger Rock trail, then ride the trail back.
Either way, this trail is an excellent addition to the bikeable trails around Estes Park!!!
