• Mountain Biking


  • Mountain Biking within Jeffco Open SpaceWith miles of multi-use trails for those looking for a two-wheeled excursion, Jefferson County Open Space provides mountain biking enthusiasts with opportunities to challenge technical skills, grind up long climbs or simply pedal along quiet trails.

    Sharing the trail is every visitor's responsibility; however, mountain bikers should remember that when encountering other trail users, certain trail etiquette is expected:

    • Equestrians always have the right-of-way unless they yield. Hikers may also choose to yield.

    • Use a friendly greeting or bell to get the attention of other trail users so you do not surprise them.

    • Signal equestrians starting from at least 50 feet away. Horses respond to fast-moving objects as a threat.

    • Mountain bikers traveling downhill should yield to uphill mountain bike traffic.

    • Slow to a safe speed when passing other trail users.
