Mountain Biking Beaver Brook Watershed

This Clear Creek Open Space is located 10 miles from Idaho Springs or just west of Bergen Park on hwy. 103. Currently there is no designated trail system. It looks like Clear Creek Open Space will use the existing roads and trails. There has been a lot of activity at the watershed in the last 50 years so there are plenty of old roads to explore. I did a 22 mile loop from I.S. by riding to the trailhead and then through the watershed to Little Bear Creek rd. in Blue Valley and back down to Idaho Springs. . It was a easy ride through the watershed on a smooth overgrown old road that is becoming singletrack in places. The loop would probably be more fun ridden in the other direction. You can also access the watershed from hwy. 103 (Squaw Pass) across from Witter Gulch or Old Squaw Pass Road and Blue Valley
