Mountain Biking Bear Creek Canyon Loop
#178 of 1,345 mountain bike trails in Colorado
Ride up High Drive to the top (you'll know when you get there). Take the trail up to the right and continue to climb. You'll end up climbing about 2200 feet in about the first 4.5 miles. Take the right fork each time you have a choice and eventually you'll end up back on High Drive for the fast ride back to your car. This trail is similar to Captain Jack's but not quite as eroded or deep with gravel. There are some awesome stream crossings on the descent and some fairly technical sections (though nothing too difficult). A grueling climb but an awesome singletrack descent through the forest.
