Need to Know
Ride west on Divide road for two miles and then turn left at the sign marking Clear Creek Trail. Pass a fence, continue on for another 1/4 mile 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 doubletrack and singletrack 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.
