Mountain Biking Deer Creek Canyon

****   Add a review
#94 of 1,378 mountain bike trails in Colorado
#692 in the world

The main trail follows a small river, up to the top. However, there are a lot of cutoff trails, and it's hard to get them all in on one day. Downhill is kind of rocky, so it's a bit tiring. The trail is very rocky and is difficult to climb, must be very strong mountain biker to make it all the way up without having to walk/cary bike a lot. The trail is washed out and eroded. Have fun!

Rider questions

Q: I'm coming up from Texas any wild life out there
A: Yes, there's plenty of wild life

Q: Is there a lot of traffic on this trail? Specifically foot traffic?
A: There is a lot of foot and bike traffic. Jefferson County Open space is trying to address this. I hope they put some 1 way traffic on the loops at the top. If you are going to ride this on a weekend i recommend getting an early start. I rode i 2 Sat ago and was off the mounting around 9:00 and it was getting busier.
