Description

The entrance includes a ramp that leads to a path which travels over a banked boardwalk around Volkswagen Rock and follows the old vertigo inducing CCC-created trail along the creek. Beautiful vistas of the creek can be seen along with lichen-covered rock walls, to frame the scene and set the mood of serenity.

The path changes character as riders snake up the bluff and whip around wide-banked curves while climbing. At the top of the bluff, it changes again as bicyclists reach the rock outcroppings balanced along the steep sides dropping to the creek. Technical skills are tested through rock gardens and between huge boulders.

The Creek View Trail changes once again as riders swoop down the bluff in back-and-forth ribbons that parallel the deep gulley that you'll cross using the 28 long X 4 wide diagonal bridge that leads to the CCC Trail.
