Mountain Biking Homestead Ranch Regional Park

**   Add a review
#751 of 1,348 mountain bike trails in Colorado

This is a small, family-oriented regional park on the edge of Black Forest. Unlike the prairie approach to the park, most of the park is wooded with Ponderosa pines which extend up on to a mesa. There are 3.5 miles of mostly wide, groomed trail with one stiff climb to get to the top of the mesa and easy, fast trail up top. Some narrow singletrack with a few opportunities to session rocks can be found on the northeast end of the area at the top of the bluff. Look for a singletrack veering off to the left (when riding the loop clockwise) away from the man route and down onto the rimrock. This slightly technical singletrack will parallel the wider path and merge and diverge a few times along the way.

    This is a super easy trail that has a steep climb that's sustained. It's a great trail if you're a beginner, or if you have a beginner in your group that you want to feel comfortable on their first outing. I only rode this trail because my wife had an event at the park, so I drove out there early and rode.

    I think it's an awesome place to get out and just ride. Steep climb if you clockwise or counter clockwise at the beginning. Some spots for single track overall now bad.

    This is a small area with not much to offer--there's certainly no need to drive east to get here from Colorado Springs, Castle Rock, or Denver with so many other options available. However, the bit of rimrock can be fun and there are some major huck opportunities if you choose. This park is a nice place for a picnic, and rarely crowded, so if you bring a basket, it may be worth bringing the bike as well. The ponderosa forest is very nice.
