Description

Dutch Creek is mostly fun and fast downhill with some rough and ugly sections. The views and downhill descent are the reward to the hard climb to get there. Be prepared for several stream crossings that can prove tricky during the spring runoff season.

Dutch Creek is best accessed in a loop by pedaling up Jones Creek, traversing over(climbing and descending) on Flagstaff Pinkerton, dropping Dutch Creek, and pedaling out on Hermosa Creek. Dutch creek has flat spots, creek crossings(multiple) as well as small punchy climbs when going down but when the gravity is working with you, Dutch Creek is fast and loaded with challenging rock sections. From a downhillers perspective, the trail is a load of fun due to all the roots, rocks, off camber and just tricky sections. Frequented by dirt bikes so just be aware.
