      Epic views, leg burning grinds, hero dirt all year, and a stupid grin on your face that you’ll need a plastic surgeon to remove, and if you live in Vancouver, you can have it all after work any day of the week. Less than 45 minutes from Vancouver and 1 hour from the East side of Portland, Cold Creek is the most heavily biked section of the Tarbell trail. It is distinctive enough from the rest of the Tarbell that it deserves its own write up. Locals typically ride this section after work, bringing lights in the winter, and tack it onto other parts of the Tarbell system or combine it with Sixth Sense, Thrillium, Bells Mountain, or Chinook for more epic weekend rides.
