Alderfer Three Sisters Park

Average Rating:    (3.68 of 5)

No. of Reviews: 28

Multiple trails forming two main loops. Mostly smooth singletrack with some rock sections. Ponderosa and Silver Fox are fun but stay away from this park on the weekends unless you plan to go early in the morning.

Summary:
I'm being a little generous with the 3-point review since I didn't get to ride the whole park. I was almost to the Summit Trail from the parking lot clockwise when a storm turned me around so I backtracked there instead of finishing the Evergreen West Mountain Trail. For the north side of the road I also rode clockwise on the outer perimeter to Bearberry, over the technical portion of the Sisters Trail & back out to the lot. It wound up being about 8 miles total.

The reason I'm not saving this review until I can ride the rest is that I'm not sure that I'm going to bother making a special trip just to complete the West trail.

While the trail system does offer some challenging climbs & fun downhills and certainly has a little something for everyone, it's missing one critical element. Flow. This trail has no flow to it. It's a good workout for the most part but rates low on the grin factor all things considered.

The 3-rating for the technical aspects should be considered an average. There's some really easy stuff, some moderate stuff, & some hard stuff. That steep portion of the Sisters Trail is kinda burly, but everything else was manageable.

Recommended Route:
I rode clockwise and wasn't really that impressed considering some of the other trails in the area. I talked with a ranger for a while who said he liked to ride it counterclockwise.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Apex, Lair O the Bear

Summary:
The only section of this trail worth riding is to climb east evergreen trail, turn around, descend back the way you came.

Ponderosa is somewhat technical.
If you take mtn muhly trail CW, you quickly hit a gate and the "trail" becomes a private road. It's listed on the map, but the "KEEP OUT/ PRIVATE PROPERTY" signs kept me away.

I took bearberry (somewhat technical) to the 3 sisters loop OMFG what a sorry excuse for a trail. It's clearly not designed for mountain biking, has some very rocky areas right at hairpin turns, TONS of waterbars/logs across the trail and some super right areas that you're going to scrape bike or body on.


CONS: anti-erosion logs every 50 ft that ruin the climbs and descents.

the whole 3 sisters half and all the trails north of buffalo park road SUCK. They're just bouldering access trails.

The trails range from boring double track & fire roads, to nearly unrideable 3 sisters).

Way, way too short.

Way too close to buffalo creek to choose this mediocre mess of trails.

PRO's: E. evergreen mtn trail is an ok climb : descent.

It's alright if this trail is in your neighborhood, but totally not worth driving an hour to.




Recommended Route:
Climb east evergreen, turn around and go back down. That's the only worthwhile trail, and it's only a few miles long.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
buffalo creek.

Summary:
This is a great park. Has something for all levels of riders. I like to start in Dedisse Park ride the Dedisse trail over to three sisters and make my way to the summit of Evergreen Mtn decend down East Evergreen Mtn Trail for some fun high speed action then back to Dedisse hitting trails in 3 sisters along the way. If you are up for a longer ride, I like to ride up to Bergen from Dedisse and then up my previous route back to Dedisse.

Recommended Route:
There are too many to mention. You can ride around all day at this park there are so many trails.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Bergen Peak
Lair O Bear
Mount Falcon

Summary:
Got to ride through 3 sisters on Memorial Day, 2011. Busy in the parking lot, plenty of time to myself once I got on the trail. Occasionally stopping for the avid cyclist bombing downhill, I found myself continually impressed by this trail. I can honestly say I hadn't mountain biked in Colorado until I did this trail, it sums up everything that the front range has to offer in terms of flowy singletrack.

Recommended Route:
Head straight for the summit, then bomb down to the Bearberry trail and check out some gorgeous mountain meadows.

Summary:
Great singletrack with some technical sections, but most have alt routes you can take to tone ride down. Fun does not begin to describe this trail. Water bars and rocks add some difficulty but nothing too knarly. Switchbacks bigtime back down.

Recommended Route:
We started at the high trailhead and rode CW I believe.
