"Be sure to start this ride at the south end and ride from south to north", say the locals. Do that and you will head up the slightly rocky, unpaved road. And up. And still farther up. You'll climb for 10 of the next 12 miles through an incredible gorge lined by 2,000-foot cliffs. This ride is just as splendid as billed. But at the end of the route, you will surely pass someone riding toward you saying, "You started at the wrong end." Take their advice. In either direction this ride offers a pleasurable introduction to nontechnical mountain biking in San Juan National Forest, a spare and stony setting worthy of a Bierstadt painting. Most people will want to begin at the north end, at elevation 9,650 feet, just past Deer Creek and a brown interpretive sign for the Lime Creek Burn on the right along Highway 550. Surface: 2-lane highway, 1-and 2-lane Jeep road. Things to See: 2,000-foot canyon, trout stream, high mountains of the San Juan range, beaver ponds.
