Fletcher Creek is a good ride for intermediates to hone their skills on. The long spin out the Never-Ending Road warms you up plenty, then gets you ready for the drop back along the singletrack. Although the upper section of Fletcher Creek starts off running smooth and easy, don’t get fooled, ’cause once you cross the creek all hell breaks loose. A tough rocky climb leads into an adrenaline-inducing descent. If you like riding rocks—loose, sketchy rocks, at speed—do this trail. If you don’t like rocks, bail out early off the Never-Ending Road onto Spencer Branch Trail instead, or you’ll be really unhappy. Tread: 2.4 miles of singletrack; 7 miles of gravel Forest Service road.
