Mountain Biking Sheep Creek

*****   Add a review
#48 of 1,361 mountain bike trails in Colorado
#308 in the world

Trail is tight single track in aspen groves with beautiful meadow crossings. Climbing is sustained on the counter-clockwise route. There is a creek crossing that requires route finding to best ford the creek due to beaver dams. This trails is highly recommended in Autumn during the color change.
