Mountain Biking Deep Creek Trail

****   Add a review
#338 of 1,362 mountain bike trails in Colorado
#3,279 in the world

An epic singletrack, climbs from approx 8400 feet to over 11,000 in about 9 miles. However, the climbs are mostly gradual, and the beginner mountain biker with some moderate skill can ride at least the lower few miles without a problem. Several stream crossings. You can also shuttle this trail for a sweet 30 minute flying downhill. Check out www.southforktrails.com for a video.

    Not maintained for mountain biking. Unfortunately this trail gets little use by bikers and the amount of downed trees after about 3 miles makes it hard to get into a flow. The first few miles are pleasant; the trail meanders around the river with some small climbs. After 5 miles we turned around as you couldn't go more than a few pedal strokes without having to bushwhack around the deadfall.

    Not for your 11 year old in the hail.
    Many trees down in upper 2/3 trail.

    Rode as out-and-back. Sweet trail! Riding over grass for a significant lenghths of fun rolling singletrack. The talus sections are great too with nice path constructed over them. Just be ready as it steepens up significantly for the last three miles. There are a few trees that have fallen across the trail that need to be taken care of.

    This trail has great single track, it is an out and back. First few miles wide open valleys then narrows to cliffs and stream crossings gentle climb out and great ride back
