Park at Sunlight Mountain Ski Area. Ride around the horse stables on the Sunlight Stables Bypass to Old Four Mile Road.
This will take you up to the main Babbish Gulch
trailhead, where you'll turn and climb up the Williams Trail
. This is the smoothest climb up into Babbish.
The Williams Trail
turns into the Babbish Gulch
trail. Keep your eyes peeled for the Upper Babbish Loop
on your right. While this trail is technically a loop on MTB Project, it really only rides well if you stay right in the trees. At the top of the Upper Babbish Loop
, the trail keeps going on a closed trail through a meadow, eventually leading to the Beaver Creek Trail #2092
Turn around at the top and descend back to the junction with Babbish Gulch
Trail. Turn on Babbish Gulch
trail and head up to a creek crossing, cross the creek, get around a big fallen tree, and immediately after that take a right onto the faint Babbish Gulch
trail. Don't be scared; this trail gets better as you go up.
At the top of the Babbish Gulch
trail, you can go left to the Ute Service Road
or right to Upper Freeman Creek 2090.7W
. Go right and climb up to a really nice high point in old aspen trees. Enjoy, because the climbing is finished.
Turn around here and retrace you route back to the top of Dipsy Doodle -- this trail rips! It's fast and flowy. Go down all of the Dipsy Doodles, upper, lower, and the extension. Then finish by riding back down the Ute Service Road - Old Four Mile Connector
back to the car.
