Odlum Creek Professional Review and Guide
"Odlum Creek is a pleasant ride along a smooth road without the elevation gains so prominent on many other mountain trails. It takes you into a wilderness valley, past several abandoned sawmill sites. Along it 14.34-mile route you pass some incredibly lush avalanche slopes, which highlight the dual character of this winter phenomenon.
To your right, the rich summer growth of the these slopes makes for excellent summer habitat for animals such as grizzlies. To your left, you cross an avalanche slope where the power of avalanches is highlighted. Large trees have been snapped off as if they were matchsticks. It's amazing how humans can look at an avalanche slope and see devastation, while nature, in effect, sees opportunity. At the far end of the valley, you have the option of parking your bike and hiking a rough trail for approximately 1.5 miles up to Odlum Pond, a tiny alpine lake at the base of the Elk Range."
