Description

The Taylor Creek trail is recognized by most as the "Jedi" trail, though most people who ride it miss out on most of the trail.

The northern portion of trail drops into the Taylor Creek drainage and starts out fast. This section flows so well that you'll think that it was built for bikes. Once you have reached the main stem of Taylor creek the trail traverses the steep hill side with a few steep climbs and descents and a few creek crossings to keep you on your toes. The trail surface is mainly smooth dirt with a few rock screes and roots to break it up. The creek provides some great pools to cool off in the hot summer heat.

The "Jedi" section is the portion of the trail that drops south of Lone Tree Pass. The trail is aptly named "Jedi" due to the fast and flowing descent that drops you into Briggs Valley. It is all smooth rolling dirt singletrack.
