“A difficult 20-mile loop that takes riders up past Little Casino Creek and down Big Casino Creek, all with great views!”— Scott Andrews
- Bring a water filter and extra clothes.
- A less common alternate to this loop takes riders up the highway and Rough Creek Road to continue up Rough Creek Trail and Sunny Gulch to reach the descent on Martin-Big Casino. This option can be pedaled or partially-shuttled, but it still involves a lot of climbing and some hike-a-bike.
The views are spectacular, and you'll get plenty of opportunities to check them out while pushing your bike up certain sections. The largest junction is with the Boundary Creek Trail. After this trail comes in from the right, you'll start up the final, heinous hike-a-bike to the top. Here you're rewarded with views to the east of the White Cloud mountains.
From the top it's a non-stop descent! You'll quickly come to a junction, where you'll turn left onto the Martin-Big Casino Trail. The descent has some more challenging technical sections, but it's mostly fast, rocky, and fun! Follow this trail for about 10 miles back to the Casino Creek Campground.
