Horton Creek Mountain Biking

Though Horton Creek has a larger reputation for being a hiking and backpacking trail, it’s perfectly accessible and enjoyable for bikers as well. This trail alongside its signature creek makes for a crisp and cool ride that you’ll be sure to remember.

The 7.5 mile length out-and-back isn’t brutal, but the constant (if gentle) uphill incline provides a constant pedaling workout as you head up the creek. Things stay nice though, as you’re in the shade of the trees and by the cool creek air the entire time. Reaching the end is your reward, as you’ll get to relax by the head of a spring before making the breezy downhill trip back.
