To get to the Trap Creek Road, drive west from Stanley, approximately 12.8 miles. Trap Creek road is an easy to miss primitive road on the south side of Highway 21. Look for it between the Trap Creek Campground and the Vader Creek Rest Area. Park just off the highway and ride up the primitive road for approximately a mile. The Trap Creek singletrack trail starts on the left.
Some loose gravel in spots- the trail is more of a hiking trail than a bike trail, but still several miles of fun single track.Thank |
