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.

Clear of deadfall. Enjoy this trail before the bullets start flying.

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.
