Mountain Biking West Fork Trail

***   Add a review
#531 of 1,003 mountain bike trails in California

Great Front Range trail. Decent rock gardens with a few tight, loose switchbacks. There is some exposure and some pretty tight areas.

The singletrack is 2 miles long, total length if you make it a loop depends on where you park. Definitely worth the climb.

Getting there
From highway 192, head north on Mountain Drive, continue straight onto Gibraltar Road. About 3.5 miles from this intersection (all uphill), you'll come to a sharp lefthand hairpin curve. The trail is on the right side of the road.

After riding the trail, it will end on East Mountain Drive, north and east of Parma Park.

Rocky Nook Park and Skofield Park are two other parking options besides Parma Park.

    East and West fork of Cold Springs are seriously seriously damaged by Thomas fire / land slides. Trail disappears at the bottom and is littered with slides. Work is underway, but will be some time before its back to being one of the best trails in SB Co. again.

    A short but sweet trail. The top starts out with some loose switchbacks as you work you way down the mountain. As you get closer to the bottom, the typical front range chunk comes into play. If you love technical rock gardens, you'll love this trail.
