The Dams, Pineridge, and Maxwell
This route has a lot of climbing for the distance, but you have to climb to get these views! The Dams are tough to ride, but use your lower gears and jam it out to get above Fort Collins. You will be rewarded with some fun trail sections along with those incredible vistas. Maxwell is not on the route as shown here, but seek it out. It is a great trail for gravel and mountain bikes.
