The aptly named Forest trail takes riders into the small forest of trees on the Sunset West property. When riding downhill, you will quickly exit the trees and begin a small series of roller, berm, drop, jump, berm, corner. After that you'll climb to the top of the north hill then descend towards the north entrance of Sunset West.

Access Info

Access all of the Erie Singletrack by parking at one of two trailheads. The first is at 150 Bonnell Ave, Erie CO 80516. Second is the gas well access road off WCR 5 immediately north of WCR 6.
