Ute Creek Cut-off

No. of Reviews: 1

This trail begins as a smooth gentle path through an aspen grove, but very quickly becomes a rugged downhill ride over rocky drop offs as it follows a seasonal creek bed down into the valley below.

This was one of the funnest trails I've ridden. If you ever ride the San juan huts systems, Teluride to Moab route this is a must. you'll pick up this trail on the fifth day after a stay at the Grahm cabin. you definately need long travel, full suspension to enjoy this ride. It is a blast. I had panniers on the back of my dare and had 2 rear flats on the way down. Bring tubes!! most of this trail is in the dry creek bed or wash-out so it is like surfing the walls of a skateboard park with rocky drop-offs thown in. The descent is approx. 1000 feet. There are a few short but steep climbs thrown in the mix too. Great views all the way through.
