Rode Bear Creek Canyon today with my middle son. Great ride imo. We rode from the parking lot at the top of Cheyenne Canyon, up Gold Camp, up Buckhorn, up 667 and down 667 and Bear Canyon. Then went on to Section 16 and Red Rocks.
I thought the loop with Buckhorn, 667, and Bear Canyon was fantastic. Great climb up Buckhorn and 667. Fast, playful descent down 667 and 666 (Bear Canyon). Lots of little jumps off rocks and roots, fun curves, short scree DH sections, creek crossings -- all tons of fun. There was some snow today in the canyon, but it was all very rideable. Last but not least, the entire loop is full of gorgeous scenery.
