Lower Rock Creek Trail

Lower Rock Creek is a technical single-track trail, and is considered one of the areas best mountain biking trails.

The upper two sections of the ride are fun and fast single-track that are not overly technical. The trail crosses the road in a couple of sections. The third section is much more technical and rocky, and ends in Paradise on Lower Rock Creek Road. Leave a car in Paradise for a shuttle back to the top parking area.

Lower Rock Creek is one of our favorite trails - ride as a shuttled ride. The first two sections are fairly smooth and fast, the third section is pretty technical with lots of rocks and rock gardens. Unless you have a fair amount of technical mountain biking experience, stay away from this trail.
