Hermosa Creek Professional Review and Guide
"The Hermosa Creek Trail has long been considered as one of the country's top rides - and for good reason. It is nearly 20 miles of descending smooth-running singletrack beside the beautiful Hermosa Creek. While not overly technical, there are some off-camber sections of trail that look precipitously down to the creek. Complicated with roots and rocks, these sections lend an element of technicality not otherwise encountered. Those packing a collapsible fishing rod will find that the north half of this ride offers great access to the creek. Terrain: Singletrack."
