Mountain Biking Sunset West

****   Add a review
#173 of 1,348 mountain bike trails in Colorado
#1,262 in the world

Interlaced single track on the side of a hill. Grows bigger every week. There is a free to park large trailhead style parking lot at the entry to the site.  There is an intermediate downhill dirt pump track to the left as you enter the park that is separated from the advanced trail network that sits beyond it.  The hill that the advanced trail network sits on is north facing.  This is not ideal for snow melting if you are looking for a winter session between storms.  There is a dedicated wide dirt road that is a dedicated return path from the end of the pump track and trail network. E-bikes seen on site.  No rules against them posted at the time of last visit. No lights on sight for night riding.  Lights would be sweet!

    It's really tough to find something not to like about this trail. It doesn't offer the scenic views that other trails along the Front Range do, but there is so much packed into this tight little network of trails. It's very flowy and very beginner friendly, while offering plenty to those who want to carve out a few berms or practice a couple step-downs. This trail is where I introduced my wife and daughter to mountain biking. It was accessible enough to them that it didn't scare them off, while providing a lot of fun for me and my son. It let us cruise and ride hard without leaving them miles behind us.

    The one thing that you really do need to be cautious of is that there is frequently two-way traffic, and enough blind corners that could lead to some rather serious accidents. Fortunately, the grass isn't so tall that you can't spot someone around most corners. Just be alert and get to know the trail before trying to hit it hard, and be aware that a lot of neighborhood kids use it - don't plaster one of them!

    Super fun and flowy. All the trails out in Erie are well maintained and have zero technical issues. They have built small features for some to jump or drop, but are very small. You can get pretty good mileage with all the loops and link ups.
