18.6 mi 30.0 km
#1 Hermosa Creek Trail
Rico, CO
18.6 mi 30.0 km Rico, CO
Minor Issues
Update
Mostly Dry, Some Mud, Fallen Trees - From the camp fence to upper parking is over 20 miles, not 18.6. It matters after working that hard with a trail bike, walking, no problem. Horses and Motorcycles tear up the trail and the rains left debri and a few downed trees blocking the trail. Better to ride from upper parking lot off forest road 578 by the Pergatory Resort. Lot of obstacles and big. Lotta pedal smackers. Be careful as the southside has some serious drop of edges. Crossing streams is cool. Was s bear wondering around to, so watch out. 5 stars for the beauty alone!
