Primarily used uphill by bikes. Dry Creek is a classic foothills, favorite, and one of the best ways to access the shoreline zone above the avenues. Mostly smooth, smooth grade, with some punchy uphills, including that one switch-back.

When ridden downhill it’s super fast and fun, but lots of can be frustrating because of the amount of uphill traffic including hikers with children which necessitates the urge for caution including the recommendation to not ride down it at all during popular times.

Adaptive Bike Info
aMTB 2 Rating: Obstacles exist. You may or may not be able to ride this solo. Support rider recommended.

Moderately narrow off camber sections, single, technical rock garden, one very steep section after the switchback.

Traditionally Indigenous Territory
