Spring Creek Trail Mountain Biking

Northeast of downtown Steamboat, the Spring Creek Trail is a 5.1 mile singletrack winding along the namesake creek. There is roughly 1,415 feet of descent from the upper to the lower trailheads. There are eight bridged stream crossings on this 3-4 foot wide, heavy-traffic trail. The trail mainly rolls through mixed pine and aspen forest.

To reach the upper trailhead for the Spring Creek Trail from downtown Steamboat on Lincoln Avenue, head north on 7th Street. Turn right on Park Avenue heading east to Strawberry Park Road. Continue north on Strawberry Park Road (CR36) for 1.5 miles. Turn right heading east up Buffalo Pass Road (CR38) for two miles. The marked trailhead is on the right just before the Dry Lake Campground.

Start riding down the wide trail for five miles. The lower trailhead is on Spring Creek Road. Continue riding out Spring Creek Road which becomes Maple Street that leads into 5th Avenue.
