Looking for an easier mountain bike ride near the Antlers at Vail hotel ? Try Meadow mountain for some mountain biking down near the town of Minturn. Go West on I-70 to Down junction, exit 171. Park at the U.S. Forest service station at Dowd Junction just southoff of Interstate 70. Once in the parking lot and on your bikes, go south of the parking lot and start up the double track road. After about 1 mile of climbing you’ll come to a sign on your left that says, “1 mile to Grouse mountain trail”. Take this single track here that goes south. It is a fantastic trail. There are two short hike a bike sections for about 10 feet. Once you cross the bridge (over Grouse Creek), you’ll come out to a double track (Grouse Mountain trail) Turn left here going back down to Hwy 24. Just return on Hwy 24 going North for about 3/4 of a mile back to the parking lot. Quick and easy.
