Description

This trail connects the USFS trailhead (Grouse Mountain) to the BLM picnic area and trailhead at Mosier Gulch (connects to the Clear Creek Trail), via a long, continuous descent with many switchbacks.

At the top, watch for where the signed singletrack trail diverges from doubletrack and begins its descent. The top portion is mostly open, with a few quick ducks into aspen forests and small rivulet crossings. Watch for a fence/gate part way down (requires you to dismount to get your bike through) and continue. The lower portion is mostly in the coniferous woods and has many very steep/tight switchbacks.

The trail exits the woods near the dam/spillway. Take the gravel road northeast (left) to the Mosier Gulch day-use area.

It's a two-way trail, but climbing is very difficult due to steep, tight switchbacks.

FUN and FAST!! Top of Grouse is fast between tight switchbacks, let'r rip if you dare! Lower switchbacks are super tight and off-camber which makes riding the trail cleanly a little difficult. Aside from all the hairpin turns, the trail is not too technical- just a few rocky bits. I love taking this trail all the way to Buffalo via Clear Creek. Perfect shuttle run for the summer!
