Reservoir Hill Mountain Park

Difficulty: Beginner to advanced

Mileage: 1.4 to 4 miles

Route: Out and back or loop

Trails: Dirt, single and double track

Elevation range: 7,280 to 8,000 feet

It is extremely lucky to have this little loop in the center of town. Though quite challenging and secluded, the trail is easily accessible, and can be connected to the Dakota Springs High School Trail with a short ride on the San Juan River Trail or Hot Springs Boulevard. Future phases of the DUST2 Urban Single Track Trail Initiative will continue to enhance the Reservoir Hill trail system. 

Getting there: Two trailheads access Reservoir Hill: Spa (above the Healing Waters Resort and Spa on Hot Springs Boulevard) and San Juan (behind the San Juan Motel, on U.S. 160). Both trailheads have maps.

Difficulty: Beginner to advanced

Mileage: 2-mile loop, can be connected with Riverwalk path and Reservoir Hill 

Route: Out and back, or loop

Trails: Dirt, single track

Elevation range: 7,280 to 8,000 feet

The best starting point for this urban single track is the connector trail off South 5th Street in Yamaguchi Park. Take the connector trail next to the baseball field and then follow this amazing multi-loop trail counterclockwise as it winds behind the high school with two interconnecting trails. 

You can now easily connect your Dakota Springs ride with the Reservoir Hill trail system by taking Hot Springs Boulevard, or the San Juan River Trail to the Reservoir Hill Trailhead.
