Description

Fish Creek Falls (USFS Trail #1102) starts at a junction with Wyoming Trail and Mountain View. The upper end of the route is easier, rolling through forest and open meadows on a gradual descent.

The lower reaches of the trail are more rocky and technical, resulting in some challenging (sometimes hike-a-bike) sections.

Fish Creek Falls is often ridden as a shuttle, connecting with the Wyoming Trail from either Buffalo or Rabbit Ears Passes.

Would not recommend this trail as an uphill... Unless you mind 2-ish miles of hike-a-bike. The upper 4 miles ride really well in both directions, but the lower 2 miles are really rough going up. Sep 5, 2017
