Overview

Two great loops. Often rugged singletrack with fun, technical descents and sometimes steep climbing.

Description

Climb up the newly rerouted South Grove Creek Trail; steep in spots with newly built switchbacks.

At the top, you'll reach a 'T'. Go right, then immediately left through a cattle gate. This is a short connector trail linking the two loops. Bomb an awesome, fast descent on the Corral Creek trail over some surprise root drops. Watch for a 90-degree left turn marked with a wooden sign that says "trail." Go left.

Ride the narrow and sometimes overgrown singletrack with a few creek crossings on the Red Creek loop. Complete the loop and go right on the same short connector trail, back through the cattle gate and this time go right on Drake Creek.

Descend Drake Creek, which is an absolute blast. Fast, sometimes rocky and technical with many small drops and rock gardens to keep you on your toes. Pedal the dirt road back to the start.
