A fun addition to the Cold Creek area. Similar to lower Cold Creek in difficulty, but with generally easier optional features. Sixth Sense trail isn't very steep, so it will keep you working as the newish tread is still fairly bumpy on the upper half. The lower half is fast smooth flow trail

#WADNR is changing the MTB game, thank you! Evergreen Southwest chapter nailed it, with much thanks to Bryan Connolly for shaping some fine, fine dirt! Join Evergreen Mountain Bike Alliance today as we continue to advocate, develop and build new mountain bike trails like this one! Without YOUR support, it will not happen!

Access Info

Park at the main lot and then either climb up Murphy's grade or the parallel fireroad. The fireroad is less steep than Murphy's grade and arguably the easier option. Trail 6 can also be accessed by descending upper Cold Creek and taking trail 6 instead of lower Cold Creek.

      Perfect in the clear cut but still some mud in the forest. Should be ready to rip full speed in a day or 2.

       An absolute classic blue trail. Intermediate features but fun for every rider. Can be ridden as fast or as slow as you like and has enough interest to make it rideable dozens of times a season. Graded perfectly!

       This trail is a lot of fun! After some in our group got more than they bargained for on the upper half of Cold Creek, we decided to hit this trail up to finish our descent. If you want steep and technical, this isn't for you, but if you like jumps and flow, it's great. The builders did a great job, with a section of bermy goodness in the "middle" of the trail that is something to behold. Next time out I would climb the road (Murphy's Grade sucks IMO), and ride this and/or the lower half of Cold Creek depending on who I was with and what type of trail I was after.

       It's like the builder's goal was to create an enduro stage with everything great that the PNW has to offer. Seriously fun.
