Scott Lancaster Memorial Bike Path

I know what you are thinking. It's a 5 mile trail it's hardly worth the drive. Idaho Springs has made an effort to improve the tourism in their historic town. The trail follows Clear Creek and winds through history. See a narrow gauge steam locomotive, a water wheel, a water fall and the historic district. This ride illustrates the the mineral belt and it's grand history. See how the west was won.

Bumpy workout

Good workout but trail pretty bumpy in spots. Take caution as sand and gravel over asphalt periodically. Nice views along Clear Creek.
