Review: It's what you want! Steeps that make you work for it you will prob walk up a couple sections and then the decent that is fun and fast. I didn't go to the top top because there was a race going on when I did it but it is definitely one I'll be going back for. Like all trails within an hour of Denver get there early.

Review: Good climb up, it's techy, steep in a couple sections. Mostly rideable, but you'll get off a few times most likely. Went up Bergen Peak and down Too Long. Fun downhill, technical, fast in stretches, tight switchbacks. Gotta work for it, and definitely is not a mindless downhill.

Review: This trail is very steep (especially if you go up Too Long). The climb is is pretty brutal. I rode back down the Bergen Peak Trail to extend my downhill, which I think that was the right call. Lots of flow mixed with technical rocks on the way down. Bring an extra lung for the altitude... and expect a little snow here and there in then spring. I will definitely be coming back to this trail.

Review: Had my ass kicked by the elevation gain. unrelenting.
The trail is tough - but that does not make it bad.

Descent down Too Long was too fun!

Review: One of my Front Range favorites. Fantastic trail network with something for everyone. Advanced technical climbing, smooth beginner-intermediate cut-throughs, lung-busting climbs, and tight S-turns. Keep the beginner-intermediates on Meadow View, Founders, Elk Ridge, and Sleepy "S" trail. Advanced, tackle Bergen Peak and Too Long Trails. Bergen Peak and Too Long will test your ability to negotiate technical climbing and picking correct lines. Rode November 10th and the trail is in great condition.

Review: Great trail, with a good combination of technical challenges and great views. Rode it in October where there was snow on part of the trail in the shades and warm sun at the top.

Review: The search is over. I have found my perfect trail. After reading a bunch of conflicting reviews on this trail I decided to just go check it out. I was stoked on the whole package, the forest, views, friendly hikers and bikers. I am glad I went all the way to the top of Bergan peak. Having to walk over a bunch of rocky sections didn,t phase me as just being OUT THERE is a bonus. Allow an extra hour if you do the bergan peak trail as its a long way down to tha car park. You will find you stop often also to take in the views and wildlife. I went on a weekday afternoon as i know its a popular place on weekends. Enjoy and stay safe.

Review: You should be able to do this as a shuttle by following these directions to the top of the mountain...
1. Head west on I-70 from Denver
2. Take exit 252 off of I-70, merge onto CO-74 S/Evergreen Pkwy to Evergreen Pkwy - 3.4 mi
3. Turn right onto Co Rd 66/Ellingwood Trail/Squaw Pass Rd
Continue to follow Co Rd 66/Squaw Pass Rd - 1.6 mi
4. Turn left toward Bear Claw Ln - 1.0 mi
Continue straight onto Bear Claw Ln - 0.3 mi
5. Turn left onto Co Rd 470/Sinton Rd - 0.1 mi
6. Take the 1st left onto Tract E - 0.3 mi
7. Turn right - 0.3 mi
8. Turn right
Destination will be on the right

Review: Bergen Peak is a lot harder, and, a lot more fun than Mt. Falcon. Stout climb with typical Front Range gnar both up and down. Fun trail.
