The Bear Creek to Methodist Mountain Trail is part of the annual Banana Belt Mountain Bike Loop Race, one of the most time-honored mountain biking traditions in Salida, if not in Colorado. The non-sanctioned race pays tribute to the grassroots beginnings of mountain biking by including riders of all ability levels to participate in the festivities. A favorite of Salida locals, the Bear Creek to Methodist Mountain Trail travels up the beautiful Bear Creek drainage into the San Isabel National Forest to its intersection with the famed Rainbow Trail. This route incorporates a section of the 100-mile Rainbow Trail. The Rainbow Trail, itself, extends from the Continental Divide, southwest of Salida, to Music Pass and travels along the east side of the Sangre de Cristo mountain range. Terrain: Paved highway, county road, 4WD road, and singletrack. The route passes through semi-arid terrain along the Arkansas River to narrow, high mountain valleys lined with wildflowers. Expect smooth-running singletrack, pavement, and exposed rocks and roots. After crossing Rock Creek, the terrain becomes somewhat gravelly and sandy.
