Friday after work was awesome!

Went for a ride with 5 others after work, Headed out to Indian Creek. Made it to the Junction with Stevens Gulch and #800. Took the right fork of Stevens. I had forgot how much fun the steeps and turns on that trail were. Man I had a blast. I hope the others did as well. They seemed to really enjoy it. If you do head out there watch out for downed trees, there were a fair share of them. Sorry I don't have many pics, I was having too much fun! One of the guys did spot a black bear.SOO COOL!! That trail never disappoints.

On Stevens


Making it back to the Junction!

Trust me there is a brutal climb on this loop. While it's not near the mileage you do uphill still nothing to laugh at. That being said I'd do it again today!
