Trail shared by Tom Robson

A fun run along Burgess Creek.

Description

This is a multi-use trail that is frequented by mountain bikers so be ready for fast-moving downhill traffic.

From Burgess Creek Rd., a quick section of flat terrain quickly turns into some challenging fun as the trail begins to ascend. Unlike some other trails in the area, Creekside is a more rugged singletrack. The trail is ever changing with roots in all directions and multitudes of rocks.

The trail zig-zags across the creek multiple times as it ascends. Towards the top of the trail, it stays above the creek. From the top of the trail, you'll have the option of turning around to descend Creekside, or taking either Zig Zag or Zig Zag Connector.
