Trail Description
About this trail
This little known trail parallels Dry Creek, a tributary of the Tuolmne River. The trail is a series of undulating, twisting, technical single track trails that parallel a paved bike / jogging path. The trail extends east to Claus Rd. and west to La Loma Ave. The up and back distance is approximately 9 miles. The City of Modesto maintains the paved bike path, however, the single track trails are unofficially maintained by local enthusiasts :-) Please be courteous to other trail users and "tread lightly". Enjoy!

Review: Not a bad trail but kind of hard to follow. It's kind of make-shift.

Review: This is my go to trial- I live near by. The trail club here in modesto is improving the trail every day. It's about 5 miles one way so you can get in a good 10 mile ride. I'm ready to go hit Santa Cruz for something different- dry creek is a lot of fun

Review: I just completed this course today and I must say it's one of the best places have written so far. Nice family environment, also challenging trails at the same time easy. You just have to pick your trail and that's how much fun you will have

Review: Being modesto only singetrack trails, it a really good beginner trail, very smooth and not many rocks and debris. some area have very low tree branches, so your going need to duck. some parts of the trail are narrow and close to edge, but there alternate route to avoid them

Review: I've been riding this trail for 20 years and it is constantly changing. I also ride Mammoth, Tahoe and others. For a trail with no elevation this trail is real good. If you choose the right paths it can be challenging. Good narrow single track. Short climbs and some good short downhill. Ride the trail from Kewin to Claus Rd and you can put in a good 12 mile ride.

Review: Easy ride for beginners. Nothing to technical. There are a couple of spots that are challenging but always has an alternate route.

Review: I am just getting back in to Mtn. Biking & decided to try this trail out & I found it really entertaining. Some nice straight aways & a good mix of technical stuff. There is a Bathroom right in the middle by the park, with water to boot. The trail would be a LOT better if it had ribbons or markers designating the trail, but after a few passes, I'm sure I'll figure it out. There are a few spots with very low hanging tree limbs & some single track that is about 12" wide with no where to go, but down in to the river. One last thing, be aware when riding this trail, very blind & you are destined to meet someone head-on.. But, a super trail, that is super convenient...
