The trail starts off of Divide road, at a sign marking Clear Creek Trail. You'll pass a fence and continue on for another 1/4 miler until you reach a gate. After the gate, the trail weaves and climbs a bit before dropping a few hundred feet down the loose descent.

There is a nice view of the plateau from the west end of the trail, at about mile 5. The trail then follows DT and ST back east for a few fun miles. The trail is a little beaten up in spots, but there are some very fun, flowy sections.

The ride finishes with a climb back up a ravine, past a couple of gates, to Divide Rd and your vehicle.
