I love this trail. This trail saved my life; I was sliding into sedentary oblivion when my 11 year-old son and I passed the trailhead signs and decided to investigate. We got destroyed on our first run, but I had enough fun to come away with a new passion (obsession). Now much less totally pathetic in terms of fitness, I manage to ride Sope Creek 4 or 5 times a week if the conditions warrant.
I LOVE the new reroute completed in June to avoid the permanent (and expanding) mudfields along Gumby Creek that had served as a pretty significant deterrent to regular rides there. Sope Creek is no longer "Slop Creek"!
