The Brainard Lake area is located west, and higher, than Ward off the Peak to Peak Highway. These are USFS trails, and as such, are more raw and rugged than most of the trails at lower elevations. In fact, this is the highest mtb trailhead in our area.

There are many options leaving the trailhead - you can leave north or south on the Sourdough Trail. and you can head west towards Little Raven or South Saint Vrain, which both intersect with the loop road at Brainard Lake proper. The main draw, for mountain bikers, is the amazingly hard techincal nature of the trails. Trails feature bridges, loose and embeded rocks, and an altitude of nearly two miles high is felt be nearly everyone.
