Dry Creek Trail
Jul 31, 2023 @ 8:57pm

Access to Dry Creek is no longer inundated. Lots of driftwood has accumulated on the road road from the dam. The pitch up the to trail is hardly recognizable. Other than that trail is in great shape with a couple areas of heavy blackberry and broom encroachment, be prepared to donate a little blood to the blackberries if you decide to ride it! Lots of evening shade and a little cooler down by the water. Great trail!
