“Technical well maintained singletrack trails.
— clark B.
There is a smaller beginner loop at the beach parking area. the loop is around 1 mile long. The trail is very easy and close to bathrooms and water.
Closed one weekend on or around Thanksgiving.
A small connector on the road, and a 15 second section down to the next part of trail are the only times you won't be riding singletrack. This is a nice outer loop that encompasses some of the other smaller connecting trails at Dillon State Park. The start point is at a camp-store with bathrooms (heated in winter). And yes, trails are maintained in winter also. This is just a well built and well-maintained trail system.
Need to Know
Be aware, you'll come across horses, as the bike and horse trails cross at times. Use caution, communicate with the rider, and be prepared to dismount as you pass equestrians.
Most will start at the beach parking lot, which is a logical starting point. However, starting your ride at the upper camp store gives access to the loop from 2 different areas, which is a nice way to change up this ride. It really does not matter which way you go, the loop is fun in either direction.
The full outer loop grabs your attention with all kinds of technical features. You won't be bored as there are a variety of obstacles, both man made and nature made. This is more of a cross-country route, with rolling descents and climbs, so it may not suit a downhiller's riding style. That doesn't mean that there aren't many fun speedy places. Did I mention technical?
Great job by the trail workers!
