Mountain Biking Bald Mountain Road / #300

****   Add a review
#602 of 1,347 mountain bike trails in Colorado
#6,219 in the world

Bald Mountain Road runs for about 11.5 miles from the Arkansas River up to gravel road #187. It's a 4x4 road the whole way and is VERY SANDY in spots, making this an ideal fat biking route. There are a few short spurs off of this road as well, including one that climbs Bald Mountain itself.

    Bald Mountain road provides great access to singletrack and doubletrack, but by itself, it's not a bad ride. However, I'd recommend a fat bike so that you don't have to hike through the endless stretches of deep sand.

    The north eastern segment of this road is nice hard pack and a great way to get to trails 1423, 1424 and 1425. The south western part (starting at the Ruby Mtn. TH) is deep sand. You will need a fat bike or a very strong will to ride this. On a fat bike it is not too much problem going up (slow but steady) and pretty fun riding down.
