This is the classic way to ride 409.5 as a loop. The climb to reach 409.5 is long but well worth it! Beginning with some easy road spinning you’ll quickly find yourself on trail 409 where you’ll encounter some steep technical climbing along with some easier and beautiful aspen forest single track. The climb continues when you reach the Point Lookout Trail as it meanders up the open hillside to the top of 409.5. Pt. Lookout was built by CBMBA in 2013, and nicely meanders 2.1 miles up to 409.5.  409.5 is a short and fast, rooty, loose, and awesome descent. One of the best but hardest to earn in the valley. It is also a multi-directional moto trail so be aware of uphill traffic. Once you finish 409.5 you have multiple options, back down the way you came for a fast exit or choose from adding Strand Bonus, Strand Hill, Farris Creek, or Strawberry Trail, to end your ride.
