The Gold Run Trail provides access into Bear Creek from the West Mancos area. Although it is a short stretch of trail, it is incredibly rocky and steep with a elevation change of 1700ft in only 2 miles. This trail is a popular place for enjoying the fall foliage. If travelling by bike, the recommended direction of travel is toward Bear Creek. This route can be combined with the Bear Creek Trail, Morrison Trail and the Aspen Loop to create a loop.
