Mountain Biking Mount Baldy

****   Add a review
#327 of 1,359 mountain bike trails in Colorado
#3,636 in the world

Take FR 379 to the intersection of FR 701 (1.7 miles), which is the beginning of the Jones DH.
Stay on 379 as it winds North, then West, then South, then west again. At about 4.2 miles, you
will come to an open meadow on your left. Stay on the trail until you get to the intersection of
379/379a (4.7 miles). You are at the west side of Mt Baldy. 379a cuts a hairpin to the south.
Take this. If you continue on 379, you go to Elk Meadow. 379 wraps around the Mountain and
will end at the gates to Stratton Resovoir. You could dismount and continue at the "authorized
vehicles only". I stopped here and just enjoyed the views at 11,850 ft.
The trail is doubletrack/atv capable. Some sandy parts in spaces. Not a super strenuous climb,
but a good workout.

    It's nice going up, and awesome coming down. Nothing technical, but it can get pretty fast.
