“An out-and back trail - Pretty much the easiest trail at Pandapas.”
— Michael Bruce on Feb 28, 2013
DescriptionPoverty Creek is the most heavily used trail at Pandapas because it is the easiest. However, there are several creek crossings and a few rocky sections that require intermediate level skills so don't take it lightly. The lower third of Poverty gets pretty remote and sees a lot less use than the rest of the trail. It also gets pretty overgrown later in the season.
The Poverty Creek Trail does not drain well and will keep mud many days after a rain. Other trails at Pandapas drain much better.
A lot of folks go to Pandapas Pond, ride the Poverty Creek Trail, and think this is all there is. Don't do that! If you have skills, you have to combine sections of Poverty Creek with other trail segments at Pandapas to create a good loop.
