Clear Creek Trail is a fun single track that traverses the hills between Jack's Valley Rd and Highway 50. Great views over the valley. This trail can be sandy during dry summer months and is best after rain, in the spring or fall.

Access Info

Start from the bottom on Jack's Valley Road to climb (15 miles), or start from the middle off highway 50 (Golf Club Drive exit) and climb Upper Clear Creek Trail (5 miles) or descend Lower Clear Creek Trail (9 miles). Can be shuttled from US Highway 50 midpoint (Golf Club Dr. Exit). Trailhead is subtle, unmarked, and easy to pass! From parking area, descend only 50 meters below barbed wire fence and look for cairns on your right which lead through a shallow drainage rock bed on the right. The main trail is well signed 600 meters ahead and at each intersection afterwards.

Getting loose. Ride it don’t slide it! Oh and it’s snake season so you might want to leave your dog at home

Had a great first-time ride! Some turns are tight, and the sand off the main tread near the bottom is loose, but keep it in control and it's all...
