Barbour Forks Trail
This 7-mile out-and-back just south of Idaho Springs offers some of the most fun singletrack riding to be found in Clear Creek County.  The ride begins with a steep grunt of a climb up the jeep road from the trailhead but, after a mile or so, the singletrack fun begins!  As it winds through fields of wildflowers and mountain forests, the trail tightens and becomes rocky and rooty.  Many other trails intersect with Barbour Forks and all are worth further exploration.  The final singletrack section, running along the initial road climb, is notoriously technical before it dumps riders back to the parking lot.  Riders should stop at some of the numerous sweeping, panoramic views along the ride for some beautiful rest breaks. Park at the main lot at the gate to the jeep road.
