Deer Creek Trail
September 26, 2010
So since moving here in 2003, I have slowly been adding Mountain Bike trails to my repertoire. Each time I ride a new trail it seems like it quickly becomes my favorite. Deer Creek Trail was no exception to this. This 28+ mile loop from town sends you on an epic ride around Mount Crested Butte. There are certain rides that are best at certain times of year and this is one of them. A lot of people like this ride early season when everything is really green and the flowers are coming out. However, this ride seems to trump my previously favorite fall ride by a landslide! I could not believe the colors I was coming across and at what seemed to be the peak of its color change. This was no day in the park for me as a rider but it was well worth it. Just to be sure that this is my new favorite fall ride I might have to go ride the Dyke Trail tomorrow. Come join me.
