The trail can also be easily accessed from the north side, by Lake Granby off Co Rd 6.

Description

Starting from the meadow, this trail winds up and quickly comes to a very steep section. Bike up as far as you can, but this will be a hike-a-bike for most. Once you get to the top after this short but steep section, there is some killer singletrack that winds its way back down into the Doe Creek drainage.

As you start going back uphill, keep an eye out on the right (east) side for an old pickup that must have been left out there by a farmer 30 years ago. Once you get to the top, you'll a relatively steep descent where you can take optional switchbacks if you want to avoid burning out your brakes. It quickly flattens out and becomes some great, flowy singletrack through the forest and a beautiful meadow. After the meadow, it's a quick stretch until you come out at the Doe Creek trailhead right on the edge of Lake Granby. If you're hot, go take a dip.

Too many steep sections. With the elevation we were walking our bikes too much to consider this an enjoyable ride. Recommend for a hike instead. 6.8mi

We started from the north end by Lake Granby. The singletrack portions were quite good. However the meadow portion had a lot of standing water. 3.9mi — 0h 34m
