“A beautiful ride from downtown to Mosier Gulch Picnic Area along a forested creek.”— Christopher Bare
Family Friendly First part of the trail is an easy ride/hike.
Take Veterans' Lane (on the right) out of the Veterans Home until you nearly reach the highway. Before the highway, turn left onto Highway 16 Bike Path that runs parallel to the road. Follow this path up the mountain until you reach Clear Creek Trailhead on the left.
Continue on the Old Power Plant Loop singletrack trail from this trailhead as it generally runs parallel to both the highway and Clear Creek. The trail will become progressively more technical and there are several intermediate rock gardens in this section.
Stop and take a few pictures of the old power station before following the William J. Mentock Trail to the Mosier Gulch campground. From here, enjoy the ride back to Buffalo as it is nearly all downhill.
