Perry Creek / Fairplay Rd Loop

Level of Difficulty:  Moderate (700' total climbing)
Riding Time: 1 hour  Printable Area Map:  Perry_Creek / Fairplay Rd Loop  (Adobe Acrobat required)
Season to Ride:  All Year

Description:  This is a relatively easy ride - with the exception of the very first hill, and the climb near Fairplay.  As such, it earns the moderate rating.  This is a fun brief loop that can be done in less than an hour, and you'll pass by many of the local wineries in the Fairplay Region.  This makes a good ride for those who are short on time, or not used to the longer rides (and more hill climbing).  All day parking is available at Pioneer Park where this ride starts (park is open from 8:00 am - dusk).  Traffic note:  Fairplay is becoming increasingly popular for wine tasting.  Traffic can be a concern - especially on weekend afternoons.
