Overview

Description

The Clear Fork Trail is a somewhat remote, lightly-used trail in the North Fork Valley. It doesn't see many bike tires on it. To reach the singletrack, follow the Gas Well Service Road from the gate at the end of FR 844. After 0.75 miles on the doubletrack, the singletrack Clear Fork Trail will turn off to the left. You'll see a fork for the Jones Creek Trail at 2.75 miles; keep right on Clear Fork here. After another mile, you'll come to a gas well where you meet up again with the Gas Well Service Road. Clear Fork continues up the creek for another 4.25 miles.

The trail follows the Clear Fork of the Muddy for 8 miles. It is a gradual climb starting in brush country with mostly cottonwood and spruce along the creek bottom. As the trail climbs to the north, it gradually enters into aspen forest. Some open parks are found along the route and near its north end the trail passes through Clear Fork Park which is a little over a mile long. The trail ends at the divide between the Gunnison River drainage and Colorado River drainage. Forest Road 808 heads down into the WRNF from the highpoint.
