This locals' favorite is considered by many to be the best and most difficult single-track mountain biking terrain along the Front Range. From the notorious, heart-pounding climb up rocky Belcher Hill Trail to the thrilling descents down the Maverick or Longhorn Trails, it offers 18 miles (30 kilometers) of multi-use trails. Hiking, horseback riding and wildlife viewing are also popular activities. The park also maintains two campsites for backpackers and horse packers. Most riders begin at the east entrance to the park. A must visit for the camping fans.
