Mountain Biking Colorado Trail: Redskin Mountain
#270 of 1,344 mountain bike trails in Colorado
The trail here is similar to other Colorado Trail sections in the area, though the first 3 miles or so
are heavily used by horses and the tread is sandy and broken up in places. Ride on the Colorado
Trail, mostly downhill for about the first 5 miles. At the second road crossing, turn left (FS Road
543) then take a quick left onto FS Road 550. Go about a half mile and turn right onto Gashouse
Trail. Take this up on singletrack and continue to Miller Gulch trail. Turn left onto Miller Gulch
trail, go through the gate at the top of the hill and turn right onto FS Road 553. Follow this down
and make a left onto FS Road 549, then continue left onto FS Road 553. Go up the second road
on the right, through the gate back to the intersection w/ Colorado Trail. Go right and climb
about 2.5 miles back to the trailhead. We did the loop backwards, it's pretty easy to get lost out
here with all the roads and trails. Pretty good trail but we got stuck riding the trail at the same
time as some horseback riders. Still a good workout and some nice singletrack in the woods.
