    Zee Best TRAIL near SW corner of C470?

    I'm begging for a response. Please, please, please, please.

    I moved here from SLC, and this Front Range is freakin me out. I'm used to facing East to look at the mountains, and I just can't figure out what and where to ride.

    I'm near SW corner of C470 after work so I'm looking for the best technical downhill nearby. Don't care about what it takes to get up.

    Deer Creek.

    Edit: Watch out for rangers handing out tickets for excessive speed.

    Shuttling Apex is the best option for your location.

    Shuttling Apex is for pussies who can't ride or walk uphill. And with gas at $4/gallon that is retarded.

    Deer Creek is a great choice. You can add a portion of South Valley to add about 3 miles each way. Both are Jefferson County Open Space parks. Also, you can ride Waterton Canyon up to the Colorado Trail and then ride the CT, Roxborough loop, Indian Creek loop or any variation thereof. You just have to be willing to put up with the 6 miles each way of Waterton.

    Serious? Speeding tickets?

    ......Do they also give out tickets to A-hole hikers who walk side by side and dont get out of the way?

    Thanks for the warm welcome

    I think I'll check out Deer Creek.

    It is super lame if someone is actually handing out speeding tickets. I'm sure the dude was joking when he said that, but coming from Utah, I'm not surprised by much. They better have a speed limit sign posted for all trail users. I wonder how safe it is for a biker to ride downhill and monitor the MPH on the speedometer at the same time?

    I agree on Deer Creek. It has a couple of hikers-only trails that help keep conflict down a little. The Red Mesa loop is best done clockwise IMO. The Plymouth loop is best done counterclockwise.

    Ask the people who got speeding citations.

    Did you know that they hand out speeding violations at Park City?

    The posted speed limit is 30mph downhill on a bike. If you go above it and you get clocked by PCMR radar, which is automated with cameras, they will wait for you at the bottom of the lift and hand you your violation. It can range from $20 - $55 depending on how fast you were going.

    Deer Creek is always good, Anyone ever cleaned the wall on a singlespeed? Bring up those old vids of someone cleaning the wall (who was that?) Not me, I like to do both loops and then reverse them, climb to the lookout and then down, that way you ride everything up there twice. Too bad you can't ride the Homesteader trail, that is some sweet singletrack, only hiked it with the dog.

    I like to do Red Mesa Clockwise.
    I like to do Plymouth as an up and back on the single track portion, while hitting bear trail as a down and back, (on the way back down).

    I agree that the hikers get sparse once you get past a certain point.

    That's why most riders go rape and pillage Utah and then come back.

    It's been ~5 years since I've been to Deer Creek. When did they put in the stairs?

    The stairs seem a little unecessary.

    Rode Deer Creek yesterday. It is pretty fun, thanks for the suggestion.

    I saw one dude make it up The Wall.
