    I took my 10-year-old son, who is just getting into mountain biking there yesterday and we had a blast. He and I rode all three courses and it was easy forr him to get around obstacles if they seemed too difficult. Its like a miniature downhill experience. The conditions were great. Not too loose. We had a ton of fun and I would recommend this trail to anyone. Whether you are honing your skills, new to the sport or just want to have fun this is a great place for a quick or long ride

    This park has a lot of potential to be great, but with no more development and trail building for advanced sections being evident, it remains at 3 stars. More advances riders can session the flow trails for a while, and they are a lot of fun. With a bunch of voodoos, jumps, berms, and doubles, these trails are very fun. Conveniently, they are the closest trails to where I live, so I am constantly riding there. Boulder Bile parks (the trailbuilders) need to add more sections, jumps, and lines. Although this bike park has some really fun sections, it lacks the pure quantity to keep an advanced rider occupied for more than an hour.

    Bayou Gulch Bike Park is a more fully featured bike park than nearby Rhyolite Park in Castle Rock, but both lack a critical skills feature - the pump track. The beginners loop has a bit more of a jumpy feel than a pump feel on the bumps, and the berms weren't quite laid out sensibly. The intermediate park was much more practical, but working skills for a more Northwest feel, with bridges and raised log trail lines. The flow lines seemed the most effective of the three areas, with different skill sets required for each flow line. The walking trail around the park features is very sandy, some places a couple inches of sand made it feel more like a sand pit than a trail, but also good skills to work on. The big drawback here was the mass of goat heads. I rode across the uncut grass in one spot, and managed to collect almost a dozen goat heads in my front tire.
