The West Fork Iron Creek Trail 6117 extends from the Ridge Road 60020 down to the West Fork Iron Creek Road 60046. The upper end is in an area burned by the Salt Fire in 2010. That portion of the trail (approximately 1/2 mile) below road 60020 is not shown on the map as it was difficult to locate. Supposedly it has now been cleared in 2016. Both access roads are rough roads. The trail itself is singletrack with challenging riding for advanced riders. It is best ridden downhill due to steep grades in places. The trail follows the north side of the West Fork of Iron Creek for the bulk of the way. Note: The missing upper portion of the trail needs to be located and GPS'd yet. There are numerous dead trees waiting to fall along the trail. There may be significant amounts of deadfall if not recently cleared.
