A fast flowing trail with a few surprises thrown in to keep it exciting.

Craig Fowler

Overview

Description

Creek Side is a bear to get to but the ride back down is well worth it. Starting almost on the top of the crown, Creek Side drops in off of Prince Creek Road to the right. Right away you'll cross the creek and then again. The top half is smooth and can be quite fast if you want it to be.

The second half of the trail gets rougher and steeper, gone is the smooth tread and is replaced with rocks and some sand. Creek Side finishes up in a field along Prince Creek road, which you would have ridden by on the way up. You can either ride the road back to Monte Carlo or continue to Skill Saw (Lower Creek Side), which comes out right at the top of Monte Carlo.
