“A fast downhill singletrack following the Deep Creek drainage into Creede.”— Ryan Hickman
The top of Deep Creek is little used so some good trail finding skills or the MTB Project mobile app will come in handy here. The trail meanders through a couple open meadows serving as cow pastures where you're bound to run into some fresh droppings of the bovine variety if not the depositors themselves. Take in the stunning views of the San Juan and La Garita mountains before you drop into the dense pine forest.
After about 1 mile, the trail will tilt downward starting your gravity fueled journey towards Creede. The trail is non-technical but is fast and narrow at times so watch out for downed timber along the way as the trail is only lightly maintained. From here on, the trail is easily distinguishable with no intersections to take you off course.
About 8 miles, several small creek crossings, and thousands of alpine wild flowers later, you'll arrive at the end of the trail just off Deep Creek road. Heading west, take the sharp first right turn onto Airport road eventually taking you north to CO HWY 149 and back to Creede.
