The Little Elk Creek Trail follows an old two track road resurrected as a single track. The trail winds its way up scenic Little Elk Creek Canyon. This trail is used to connect with Trail 89 at Dalton Lake and is part of a lollipop loop that has become popular in the winter with fat-bikers. This is one stellar piece of trail not too be missed.
