Ceran St Vrain (Miller's Rock) - Trail, Boulder/JamesTown, Colorado

DESCRIPTION

Beautiful trail along the creek in the trees- single track down for couple miles, then go up the fireroad (pretty loose gravel) with some challenging technical sections - Once you reach the top: choice left or right - it's a loop- I advise to go right, the left single track is pretty hard to go up since rather loose- SO, go right up the single track(though pretty wide). You will go up for 1 mile or so - MILLER rock will be on your right - you can climb up to the top and have really cool view of the area and the divide. Then keep going up, turn left onto the single track over the hill - Start going down the fire road - Then watchOUT- there is a left turn to pick up onto the single track ! If you go straight it goes on and on for a while (don't know where it goes)- Once on the single track (have great fun down REALLY GOOD there). down for 0.5 mile approx. Then again a junction, go RIGHT onto the single track (not left other you go back to Miller rock)- go down Way fun again. You finally reach the fire road you came up with *(the loose one)* turn right here down - Then turn right up onto the single track along the creek you came down at the beginning - up to the parking lot - I would recommend 2hours to do that- Have fun !!!!!!!!!

Nice singletrack through the woods, however this has gotten extremely crowded since the early 90's. Oh, do I miss the good old days when you would be the only biker on the trail. Strap a fly rod onto your bike and fish the creek - awesome rainbow and brookie fishing.

After 2 miles or so go left up the hill (I haven't gone right yet) - it is a loose 4wd trail that goes up to Miller Rock. Climb the rock.

Fun trail, with a great view from ontop of Miller Rock. I agree with the earlier posts that it gets crowded, and the trail gets loose. I went midweek late morning this summer and the parking lot was almost full! I was the only biker. I talked to several of the hikers and they mentioned several user conflicts. You really got to pay attention here, especailly on the single track next to the creek. It is very tight (good thing), but has blind spots where you can come up on unexpecting hikers, or other bikers. I would not want to got over the edge. Once the trail starts uphill to Miller Rock, it gets really loose. Some sections were unridable, they are just sand pits. Looking at a topo map, you may be able to avoid some of this by sticking to double track instead of follwing the recomended route. One example is to go straight following the contour/slight downhill double track instead of going up and left at the sign which is at the crest of the first double track uphill. (Sign has nothing written on it on side facing you as you come uphill.) Further down they reconnect if you make the correct turns. If you make it to Miller Rock, you have to climb on top of it for the view. It is worth all the killer uphill! The local club BOA has maps on their website. www.boa-mtb.org

Follow the great single track along the creek, then go up the double track hill. At the sign, turn left and continue uphill. You'll eventually get to where a single track goes off to the right. Follw it till the T with another double track, go left to Miller Rock. Con't past Miller Rock and go left at the next T. Follow that back down. Just keep making rights on the way back down.

This trail is pretty dam cool and if you know where to search, you can find some log bridges that'll also test your skill level.This trail has it all, screaming decents, tech terrain,... The only drawback, probably mostly due to the drought, is how loose and sandy it can be up on the ridge. Have to give it a 4.

Customer Service

Go right at the top and loop back towards the left.
