Mountain Biking Cat Creek

***   Add a review

Climb up FR 271 going through meadows. Follow the trail up until you start getting into aspen groves. After about 6 miles you need to jump onto the Rock Creek trail shooting off to the left. When you hit a fork in the trail bear right and will eventually cross over Cat Creek. Follow the trail, which is all singletrack on the way down to your car. Beware of downed trees. The trail is somewhat unkept.

    Good climb up and amazing views. You will probably be on this trail all alone without another person in site. The ride down can be somewhat muddy, with roots, rocks and downed trees. If you're in Southern Colorado, you'll enjoy hitting this ride for a day.
