Dry Creek is great out and back up to an old fire lookout site. The trail head is very close to highway 12 which makes access very easy. The climb is relentless but this makes for a fast ripping descent on the way back. This trail is open to motorized use but sees very little traffic due to a bridge washout at the bottom of the trail.
Near the top there is a fork in the trail, the left goes to the lookout, and the right continues on the old dry creek trail. Following the right fork until the trail disappears makes for a great addition to the ride adding around 2mi total.

Access Info

Off US12 turn S on FR20. Trail head will be on your right in 1/4mile.
