Elk Creek (018) Details
This trail can be done as an out and back or part of a loop ride with Hogan Creek Trail or the CDT.
The lower mile or so, the trail is on old road bed. Above that is is good, sometime idyllic, singletrack.
A lot of the ride goes through an old burn area with regenerating forest.
Expect a couple creek crossings where you will get your feet wet during Summer. Route finding can be difficult in the grassier areas.

|Dozens of trees down in the first half mile. I doubt it's any better all the way to the top. This thing needs a few chainsaws.|
