Old Car Loop
Part of the Grandview Ridge Trail System.
Old Car Loop is a difficult trail accessed from the furthest end of Sidewinder Trail and is open to all non-motorized use.
Old Car Loop is a 3.5-mile trail segment that climbs steadily up to the top of the ridge into Horse Gulch. This trail is an option for extending trail mileage on often less-crowded, difficult trails in Grandview Ridge and Horse Gulch trail systems.
The trail system next to the Horse Gulch/Telegraph network (and connecting to it) is called the Grandview Ridge Trails and includes several very fun local trails. The trails are designed as ‘swoopy,’ intermediate style multi-use and multi-direction trails for mountain biking, hiking, trail running.
