Description

A valley favorite for all forms of recreation. This trail offers scenic views, wildflowers, and a flowy riverside section that follows the Big Wood River. The top of the climb on the Fox Creek side was burned in 2007, allowing visitors to watch the regrowth firsthand. The loop is a great ONE-WAY and only ONE-WAY, counter-clockwise mountain bike ride. The route is described from the Fox Creek trailhead, but can also be accessed from the Lake Creek and Hulen Way trailheads.

Directions: Drive north on Highway 75 to the Fox Creek access sign (5.8 mi). Follow the road to the trailhead loop parking and picnic area (.3 mi).

Fantastic ride! Just the right amount of climbing, with a rewarding and smooth downhill through endless wildflowers to finish it off. 7mi — 1h 15m

Not crowded, trail in a little better shape from rain, but still bumped out in most areas — 1h 32m

Gradual uphill for very rewarding downhill. Trail was a little out of shape but still fun.
