An El(khorn) Classico. This ride starts at the Willard Creek trailhead. The first part winds along Willard Creek ponds with a good chance of hearing elk bugle or seeing a moose, and more fun singletrack downhill than you deserve along McClellan Creek. After riding the McClellan/Maupin connector you can ride over to Mill Creek and back to Willard trail head or if you're feeling adventurous, you can ride upper Maupin back to Willard Creek trail.
