“A newly reconstructed trail in pine forest and meadows that's beautiful all summer.”
— Al Pendergrass
Need to Know
The trail starts at the lower North Dry Creek
trailhead and ends at the upper North Dry Creek
trailhead. If you want to skip the worst of the climbing, you can ride the road to the upper trailhead and ride the trail back down. Driving to the upper trailhead is not recommended as the road is pretty bad between the two trailheads.
The trail was rebuilt several years ago to take out the worst of the hike-a-bike but it is still plenty steep in spots. It is all manageable but don't be dismayed if you have to stop to catch your breath in the first mile or so - most of us do and more than once. The grade settles down a bit on the upper section making it easier to appreciate the spectacular country through which you are riding.
