Description [Suggest Changes]

Big Creek Summit trail is a great way to ride the full length of the Eagle's Nest Trail 111 using the paved Warm Lake Rd and this trail. The first part of this trail is very steep and will be grueling to go up, but it does not last long before you gain the ridge.

Once on the ridge the trail will go up and down and keep a mellow grade while offering some great views of the surrounding lands. Finally, you'll drop off the ridge on a steep section of trail and head towards Eagle's Nest Trail 111. You'll need to use a dirt road to get to Eagle's Nest Trail 111, but it is a great way to make a large loop.

Rode this trail today with my 9 year old. Cleared a lot of trees and brushed out the first creek crossing. Beautiful views once on top. Plan on pushing your bike the first mile plus. Once you start to see the horizon through the trees close to the top, probably 50 yards, jump up on the fire trail and take it north. If you don't ride it all the way through, you will smell brakes coming back down. Jul 24, 2017
