Trail Description
About this trail
This place has some good hills and wide trails. Alot of hikers and joggers use these trails, not to mention the people with the dogs. There is some singletrack here that is closed to bikes but is well worth the ride if you are feeling gnarley. Use these trails to connect with Gold Camp Rd. and Captain Jack's for a nice long ride.

Review: Narrow single track mtb specific trails have been added (or old social trails approved and upgraded) just up above the sports fields. There doesn't appear to be more than 2 miles of trail, but these are good quality mtb designated trails and a major improvement for this park. Hopefully there are more to come. The sports field parking area makes for a good starting point to use BCRP to access the Palmer/Section 16 loop and other trails like Captain Jacks. Don't forget to throw in Stephanie's Trail near the junction of Lower Gold Camp and Bear Creek Roads. And if you haven't had enough by then, when you return to the bottom of BC, you can play around on the new mtb trails.

Review: Nice if you just want to take a quick ride. Hard surface red rock paths with gravel in addition plentiful hikers make the downhills a situation where you won't be going full blast. Hit it in the morning to avoid blazing sun. (Almost all in the open field with little wood line).

Review: Aside from one technical descent, this trail system isn't anything special... but it's still decent singletrack riding in the city. Not too bad, all things considered.

Review: Mostly flat system with tons of hikers and lots of horse poop along the trails. Going east you can get some speed up only because you're going downhill. If you go on weekends it's guaranteed you'll run into a few hikers with dogs unleashed.

Review: This trail network is good for families. The more west you go the more single track you find. This place can connect to a lot of different trails, but really ...why would you want to unless you are with the family?

Review: A Network of Singletrack in the foothills of the Bearcreek Regional Park in Colorado Springs, CO. It goes wide to "thin" singletrack, has good views of Cheyenne Mnt. and Pikes Peak to the west.

Review: There are "multi-singletrack trails", hooked into several loops. I couldn't find any signage showing the "Letter marked (A-O), as show on the map. It's mostly sand/clay hardpack singletrack, thru the parks foothills.

Review: Other than the final descent to Bear Creek Road at the west end (which is to short to be interesting), there's nothing to see here. Wide, packed gravel trails suitable for dog-walking (of which there is much). Best use is as an extended warm-up as you approach Palmer Loop/Section 16, Intemann Trail, or Gold Camp Road on your way to the Cheyenne Canyon trail network. UPDATE: New singletrack has been cut here. There are numerous narrow singletrack loops available at the lower end of the park and Stephanie's trail on the high end really improves this place. It's still best as a connector to other trails up high, but now you can have a lot more fun getting there. Also, the "Stephanie's Trail" provides a stiff climb (or descent), some tough technical spots and a singletrack alternative to part of Gold Camp Road when traveling between Cheyenne Canyon and Bear Creek Canyon.

Review: Nice, mellow ride with some good climbing on the west side of 21st St. It's a fun place to ride every once in awhile.
