Mountain Biking Young Gulch

****   Add a review
#51 of 1,377 mountain bike trails in Colorado
#365 in the world

Solid singletrack with many creek crossings. Forested and cool. Lower section is rocky and rooty, but there is curvaceous singletrack in the upper section. Ride up the gulch to the top of the hill, and decend at speed. Watch for bikers and hikers on your way back down. More technical than nearby Hewlett Gulch and Dadd Gulch.
