Sulphur Creek Trail

Average Rating:    (3 of 5)

No. of Reviews: 1

I'm throwing this one out as just one, small example of fire road alternatives in the huge Shell Ridge/Mt. Diablo trail system. Sulphur Creek drops down from the pond to trail head in a series of steep rollers clinging to the side of the creek. Rocks, roots and dropoffs may make you consider how quick you want to go... There are a number of trails in this area like this, I'm convinced most riders just aren't willing to deal with the climbing and exploring needed to find and ride them...rather park one car at the top of an "epic" trail and "downhill" (usually too fast for their skill level and others sharing the trail)to their buddy's car...
