Overview

This lollipop ride is steep, flowy, beautiful, and a great break from the crowds at Red Hill and Prince Creek.

Need to Know

Could run into tons of cows at some point throughout the year.

Description

The loop starts off of Cattle Creek Road and climbs the steep County Road 64 (steepest part of the route). This road is generally smooth and climbable.

This leads to a gate, where the Fisher Creek trail goes around to the right. Climb up to the old ranchers homestead and take a left on the Fisher Creek Connector and climb up to an old cemetery. Continue on County Road 62 up to Red Canyon Road and take a right. Ride the pavement for a few miles to the east and turn south, heading downhill. Look for the Fisher Creek access to the right (west) and the easternmost end of the Fisher Creek trail to loop back west towrad the start.

The section of Fisher Creek that heads south is a spur/dead-end, though you can exist south on BLM Road 8292A to head back to Cattle Creek Road 113.
