Description

Pierson Park Road is a nice long stretch of quiet and isolated doubletrack that can be easily combined with other trails for a grand mid-elevation adventure.

From Cabin Creek Road in Meeker head up through the Forest Service gate (locked since the 2013 flood) on the sometimes eroded and steep Pierson Park Road (#119). While generally rideable, there are a few steep sections that will likely have you pushing.

A huge wash out from the 2013 flood after about 6 miles poses some route finding challenges- when heading toward Estes it is necessary to climb a bit while crossing the washout to connect with the track on the other side. The northern 3 miles were regraded since the flood and are in good shape. There is no parking at the northern end due to private property, but there is a large dirt area at the southern end off of Cabin Creek Road. This can be ridden in either direction with a similar level of difficulty.

Windy 4wd Dirt road with some steep inclines through the top of the mountain, lots of dispersed camping. Rode for an hour before sunset.

Jeep trail, steep and sustained. ORV traffic. Meh overall. Seeing the Twin Sisters slide area from the 2013 flood is cool.
