Mountain Biking Hewlett Gulch

****   Add a review
#54 of 1,377 mountain bike trails in Colorado
#397 in the world

From the bridge that crosses the Poudre river, follow the trail north into the gulch. About 2.5 miles up, you will see a steep rocky section. Don't go up this steep section, but keep going straight north instead. The trail will start to wind west as you head up a meadow. At the top of the meadow, you need to make a decision... You can either turn around and follow the trail back down to the trailhead, or you can keep going. If you keep going, you will have to ride down the previously mentioned steep rocky section. This section requires expert riding (or walking) so use caution. Once down, follow the trail back to the road.

Getting there
Go north out of Fort Collins on Hwy 287. Take a left at the Poudre Canyon turnoff (Ted's Place). From Ted's Place, go 10 miles up the canyon. Trail is on north side of the road between mile markers 112 & 111 just after the small town of Poudre Park. There is no designated parking lot, so find a safe place at the side of the road to park. Trail is on other end of a bridge that crosses the river.
