Super fun, fast, flowy. Nothing super difficult but there are some chattery sections and a rock feature that is a bit technical to get through. Overall a beautiful and really fun single track that'll have you grinning ear to ear when you are done.

I really like this trail, but the long climb to get out felt like a bummer as I wanted the trail to keep going. So in other words, it felt short. What IS there is a lot of fun.

I really enjoyed this one. Fast and flowy to allow you to open it up and hit high speeds.

Trail Dry Creek
This trail is crazy fun. Starts super fast and flows well. Then keeps flowing with a bunch of creek crossings with skinny bridge options, you can take the bridges or fly through most creeks. Then the latter part opens up again for fast single track. The very end has some short technical climbs. But for the most part this trail all speedy fun!

This trail is OK. The downhill has some fun bits broken up by sharp switch backs. Never quite gets it’s flow going. And has some climbing. It’s not a destination trail, but worth doing as part of longer rides, it’s way mor fun than just riding the road to dry creek.

There is currently a pilot project in place:
Even numbered days, uphill traffic only.
Odd numbered days, downhill only.

IMO, it's way better now.

Nice downhill if you're up for something more steep, lose and challenging than the rest of the nearby systems.

This Connector between sidewinder and the gulch was the best part of my ride, conditions had the dirt packed tight and you can straight up send the rollers as deep as you wanted and plenty of berm to ride carry lots of speed. mildly tased in the middle of the trip but on a newer geo trail bike this this was a blast.

Fun trail for a long, slack AM bike like my Nomad. Yeah, it's loose, but there are good berms to keep you from flying off anywhere too crazy. Don't armor up until the intersection with 4A a little ways in. Learned that when it was 97 degrees out and I threw the pads on at 8th street. Good fun. Just let it rip and get your drift on.
