Mountain Biking Deadman Gulch

*****   Add a review
#402 of 1,379 mountain bike trails in Colorado
#4,003 in the world

Deadman Gulch forms the final leg of the classic Reno/Flag/Bear/Deadman loop. The Deadman section climbs steadily up to the junction with Cement Mountain Trail and Reno Ridge Trail, and then the Deadman Gulch trail plummets down the mountain side through a series of massive, technical switchbacks, until bottoming out at the creek below. What a way to finish an awesome ride!
