Mountain Biking Squirrel Creek

****   Add a review
#314 of 1,353 mountain bike trails in Colorado
#2,934 in the world

Access from Davenport Campground off hwy 165 and loop Second Mace/Dome Rock/Squirrel Creek trails or from Pueblo Mtn Park in Beulah, since traditional access from Squirrel Cr Rd is rstricted. Squirrel Creek is the wildest ride I yet to do. Going up is a bitch, and you will probably have to dismount and walk about thirty times. The Squirrel Creek crosses the bike trail around thirty times and this is what makes it tricky riding up. Eventually climb above the creek and the trail is just normal singletrak. Take it all the way up to the old house that was burned down.Going down is F*cking sweet, it is narrow, steep, and fast. Once you hit the creek crossings is what makes the trail unique in my opinion. Here you are flying down through all of these crossings. Just be careful not to slip on rocks. Have fun!

Getting there
Drive HWY 96 for about 30 miles to a little mountain town named Beulah. When first entering the town, take the left fork going up to the Pueblo Mountain Mark. Keep on the same road until you see a white stone bridge on your right. Take a right onto the bridge and take the road all the way to its end. Park at the side of the road. The trail is right through the gate. Good luck!

    So I rode this trail first off the directions are wrong yes they take you to trail head but it is private property and no the US forest service sign says they are still negotiationg access and do not enter. So I went into park took trail head that says hiking and horseback only and hiked up about a thousand feet to squirrel Creek trail only rode sections of this trail and about 2 miles into gave up trees in path and mostly just a hiking trail. Was fun and technical in spots on way down bht would never ride it again. Would make great hiking trail. Not single track.

    Fellow Riders...the public access to this great trail from Beulah is in the Pueblo Mountain Park, not via the private property as noted in the directions. Thanks from a fellow rider and property owner!

    squirrel creek is an awsome trail if ridden from the bottom up. If you climb past the campground there is a sweet loop with second mace and dome rock.

    A lot of fun . Going up feels like a long trip but it is worth it for the trip down . The creek was great on this hot day, either ridin or walking through the creek helped beat the heat!
