Need to Know

The trail starts at the lower North Dry Creek trailhead but can also be accessed at the upper North Dry Creek trailhead. Driving to the upper trailhead is not recommended as the road is pretty bad between the two trailheads.

Description

The trail was rebuilt several years ago to take out the worst of a few damaged sections between the lower and upper trailheads 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 running, before gradually ramping up again along Eightmile Creek as it bends south toward Mud Lake #146. Beware that the trail between the lower and upper trailhead is popular with cyclists.

After you reach the upper trailhead, the trail becomes a bit more rugged and might be difficult to navigate in places.
