Mountain Biking Eleven Mile State Park

  Add a review
#825 of 1,347 mountain bike trails in Colorado
#9,024 in the world

This is a small network of hiking trails where biking is allowed. The core of the network is the three mile Midland Loop. It is mostly easy to follow and has mileage markers with a picture of a train (in honor of the old Colorado Midland Railway) and distance (measured CCW) every quarter mile. The 0.5 mile Black Bear Trail departs Midland briefly and ducks in and out of granite formations creating coves as the water's edge. Black Bear will have multiple mandatory dismounts.
There are also two other side trails along the northern edge of the route, called Aspen and Ponderosa which are also more interesting than the straight Midland route. While mileages are measured CCW, much of the trail rides better CW. The trail accesses a number of backcountry (no car access) campsites in very attractive locations.

Getting there
From US Highway 24 just west of Lake George, turn south on Park County 90 and go 4 miles the, turn south on Park County 92. At 5.6 miles, shortly after a small General Store, look for a left turn into a state park area (permit required, there is a self pay station shortly after the turn--if you miss the turn, the road will bank north and go to the park HQ where you can also get a permit and park info). After the turn, the road will dead end into a parking lot in about a half mile.

    I would not make a special trip for this trail, but if you're in the area for other reasons (camping, fishing), it's worth bringing the bike along and getting in a lap or two. If you're an advanced rider and/or don't mind walking a bit, I recommend taking the side trails rather than just sticking to the main Midland loop.
