“A beautiful wooded loop with great singletrack and a few linkup options for those warm summer days.”— Chuck McQuade
You'll encounter a touch of everything on this loop, including nice winding singletrack through dense wooded areas, a short section of doubletrack, fast and entertaining downhill, even a section of large rolling jumps.
**Fee for parking at the Indian Creek Trailhead is $7.00 per day per vehicle**
The next 8 miles are all downhill from here. Continue north along the dirt road marked with the #800 trail sign for 3 fast miles. Once reaching a large power line tower, look for the singletrack to start back up to the east. An awesome mile long section of downhill now awaits.
Next you'll reach a crossing trail, turn left or north to continue along trail #800. The next section is made up of a wide singletrack with countless what appears to be man-made jumps. FUN. After reaching a meadow, the trail bends to the west with some more amazing downhill and several big rock and root drops.
Continue along the trail #800 passing a trail that turns to the right which heads to the dirt road of Waterton Canyon. After a few creek crossings and the loop's first steep and challenging climb you'll reach the turning point in the loop. Here you climb back to the south staying on trail #800 (west leg).
At about mile 11 you have a short downhill to Bear Creek in which the trail follows back to your starting point at Indian Creek Trailhead.
See featured ride Colorado Trail: Indian Creek East Leg (alternative to Waterton Canyon) to South Platte Canyon for a great linkup.
