In a couple of weeks, I’ll be making the trip from Huntingdon, Pennsylvania to Salida, Colorado for a Singletracks Editorial Team Meet-Up. I decided to take a little extra time off and drive out instead of flying. I love road trips, and this would give me an opportunity to stop and see other places along …

Mntbikedude rides a rock bridge on the northwest side of Little Creek Mountain.  Unfortunately, we'd cut our ride shortly hereafter.

Day Three of the Second Annual Spring Break Singletrack Trek would be the one which we chose to ride a trail which would be a repeat, at least for Mntbikedude and I; Miniskibum had yet to experience the wonders of  Little Creek Mountain.  On previous trips to St George, I had multiple runs, one with …
