These trails at Hermit Park would fit in nicely up at Curt Gowdy. With lots of twists and turns and rocks to navigate, you get your thrills here by employing good bike handling skills instead of screaming descents.

These are beautiful trails, running through pine forest and some large stands of aspen trees. There are many alternate lines built into the trail. These aren't signed (as of this writing), but if you keep a sharp eye while you ride, you can pick them out.

Most of these alternate lines involve large rocks in one form or another, including some drops and steep rollers. There is some really great trail work here, especially evident in the wonderful switchbacks.

Dad could keep up at the beginning. We had to bike uphill to the trailhead and then continue uphill for thirty-so minutes. After that it eased up. 9mi

Being an Estes Park resident it's really great to have a fun, fast singletrack around. I was a little disappointed that the horse traffic has already torn up the trail a little, but that's the nature of the area. Super fun, fast, and some technical spots too. I give it five stars mostly because it's a fantastic local trail that can be ridden fast, which isn't the norm around here. Sep 17, 2017
When connected to Lion's Gulch, this makes for a great 12 mile shuttle run outside of Estes Aug 7, 2018
So flowy and fun, but with enough rock outcroppings to provide a bit of a challenge. Overall, this trail is good for riders of almost any level and it is well maintained. Small, gradual climb at the beginning and then again at the other end on the way back, but the majority is pure flow, especially on the way back, beginning at the Kruger Rock junction. There are some tight switchbacks that are especially challenging for 29ers, but that's not necessarily a negative. Note that much of this trail is in the shade most of the day, so snow tends to hang around for quite a while. I last road this on Oct 26 of this year and there was no snow anywhere, so best to get after it while you can. Worth every penny of the $6 day pass. Oct 29, 2018
