Old-school high adventure ride way off the beaten path. Just finding the trailhead is a challenge, then there's the ride....
 

Lotsa berms, tacky dirt, lotsa fun. If it ends too soon, re-ride another loop, you won't even recognize it. Perfect...

Punchy little loop through big, mature hardwood forest, lots of short, steep ups and downs. Trail has an unfinished feeling...

A downhill that keeps on giving after what feels like not so much climbing. Sweet.

Beautiful and really TOUGH climb that'll leave most of us hiking a few times. That's quickly forgotten on a downhill...

One of CBs finest. Bear Creek rivals Doctor Park as one of the area's best downhills.

Loose, steep, unshaded and filled with hikers walking packs of dogs. Bring your legs and a positive attitude. Better ways...

Fun singletrack - best as a short after dinner ride if you're camped off Cement Creek Rd.
In CB soon, and just reading this may have swayed me from the original plan. Have never done Reno Flag...

If you're like me, you like "primitive" car camping on a bike trip and don't want to pay. Plus, you...
Another "B" ride to Fruita's 18 Rd. and Kokopelli Trails is the Western Rim. Go here if there's big crowds...
