Mountain Biking Lair O' The Bear / Bear Creek Trail

****   Add a review
#35 of 1,373 mountain bike trails in Colorado
#201 in the world

Trail starts with a wide smooth trail leading west out of the parking lot along Bear Creek. Continue on this trail for 1.5 miles to the Bear Creek trailhead. Here the trail switches to singletrack with an initial 1.5 mile climb with a few technical sections and switchbacks . Once at the top continue on the singletrack which has some nice downhill and fast rolling sections. A good climb up to the turnaround point at Parmalee Gultch Road return the way you came. It's just as fun going back.
