Grin and "Bear" it Mountain Bike Ride!

Saturday, June 1, 2019

Grin and "Bear" It! This is a 12-mile mountain bike ride on single-track and multi-use trails. Starting from Sugarite Canyon State Park Visitor Center, mountain bikers will cross over Chicorica Creek via a 50-foot steel bridge, traveling north along Lake Alice Trail. Riders will pass the historic Sugarite Coal Camp town once occupied by 1,000 miners and their families. Continuing north they will pass Lake Alice and Lake Alice Campground. From Lake Alice, riders will jump onto the Lake-to-Lake Trail, which will take them up to Lake Maloya. Heading west over the dam and hop onto the Opportunity Trail/Ponderosa Ridge Trail system. Taking riders around the base of Little Horse Mesa. Once they have completed the six-mile loop, riders will travel back down the canyon to the Visitor Center. There the dreary riders will be treated to burgers, hot dogs and drinks. The ride starts at nearly 7,000 feet of elevation and tops out at about 8,000 feet. Contact: Robert McIvor 575-445-5607
