General Description

This ride begins at Yeoman Park, south of Eagle. This short ride is ideal for either the beginning mountain biker or anyone just arriving in Colorado from a lower altitude. It gives the rider a chance to get a feel for the sport or the effects of the altitude prior to attempting any of the longer, more challenging loops.

From Yeoman Park, ride southeast on East Brush Creek Road (415) to Fulford Cave Campground (do not turn left at the switchback leading to the town of Fulford). The road entails a very easy and gradual 1.4 mile climb to the campground with an altitude gain of only 400 feet. Upon reaching the campground, the rider may want to hike up to Fulford Cave. DO NOT ride bicycles on any trails leading out of the campground as these trails lead into the Holy Cross Wilderness where bikes are prohibited. Return on the same road (415) to Yeoman Park.

Considerations:


Restroom facilities and drinking water are available at Yeoman Park and Fulford Cave Campgrounds. Carry a sufficient water supply with you. Be prepared for quickly changing weather conditions. A windbreak and/or rain gear is recommended.

Cautions:

Use of a helmet and eye protection is highly recommended.

This road experiences heavy motorized traffic. Use extreme caution, especially on blind curves.
