The North O’Brien Creek Loop Trail #122 is a mostly doubletrack spur off of the South O'Brien Creek Loop Trail. It adds a little extra length to the South O'Brien Creek Loop ride and rejoins that trail immediately above the singletrack, downhill switchbacks.

Access Info

The North O’Brien Creek Loop Trail continues straight on old double track where South O'Brien Creek Loop Trail turns to downhill singletrack. It then rejoins the South O'Brien Creek Loop Trail at the top of singletrack, downhill switchbacks.

Disclaimer

This trail is closed December 1-May 15 for Elk Winter Range Security.
