This Jefferson County Open Space Park is only about 10 miles from Idaho Springs.The remains of many ranches and homesteds are scatterd across this Open Space Park. When completed the main loop will be about 13 miles. The single track takes you high up on the ridges above Clear Creek and offers incredible views. This is a wonderful ride!! The singletrack is smooth, the switchbacks are rideable. The climbs are easy and not all at once.From the parking lot take Travois Trail 8.7 miles to the north parking lot . Follow doubletrack to the left back to your car.

Centennial Cone has an alternating schedule for weekend use: BIKES = EVEN days Hikers = Odd days There are no restrictions on weekdays.

Rider questions

Q: Hikers can hike EVERY day. Only bikers on the weekends follow BIkes=EVEN; no bikes=ODD
A: From the JeffCo web site: On weekends, hike and horseback ride on odd-numbered dates; bike on even-numbered dates. http://jeffco.us/open-space/parks/centennial-cone-park/

Q: I rode Mayhem Gulch-Juniper-Travois trails yesterday, 2/28/16 and the sign right next to the trail head clearly stated that this even day was a "bikes only" day. Every hiker I saw on the trail had to completely disregard that sign and walk right past it as in, "Surely it doesn't apply to me, my girlfriend and my dogs!" Is this typical at Centennial Cone in the early months of the year? I saw at least a dozen hikers and no rangers giving out tickets!
