Deep Creek Professional Review and Guide

"The Deep Creek Trail might be one of Telluride's best. Although there's a tough climb to the Deep Creek Trail intersection, the trail, itself, offers a fast romp through thick aspens and pine. The Deep Creek Trail runs a technically challenging descent over exposed rocks and roots before dumping you into a fast meadow. Views of the Wilson Peaks are outstanding. Riders will find the switchbacks down to the Deep Creek trailhead a delight.

For those of you who like speed anyway you can get it, you'll enjoy the mad race down Last Dollar Road to its intersection with Colorado 145. Take care, though. The stop sign at the end of Last Dollar Road, right before the road meets with the highway, comes up quickly. Terrain: Paved road, paved bike path, dirt road, and singletrack. The terrain encountered is mountainous: slide areas, talus fields, thick-wooded forests, soft and tacky earth, steep climbs and descents, and creek crossings."
