    riding georgetown trails without shuttling?

    Hi,

    I'm looking for advice on riding the Rock Creek OHV area without shuttling. It seems from all the mtb youtubers that this place is done best by shuttling to the top of the good trails. But can anyone suggest a loop to pedal that will get most of the good trails?

    Thanks

    Hi Mr. partlan,

    Here is a great loop that I've been riding for many years:

    Rock Creek Trip Report or So you think Culvert Trail is now too smooth.....?!?!?

    Enjoy,

    Michael

    Wait for the resident expert Prozach to chime in. I believe he is the Mayor of Gtown.

    I'll be honest with you as a person that was out there exploring before I did the shuttles, it's waaaaaaaay better to use the shuttle service. If you are planning on doing loops bring your climbing legs. Also the OHV map doesn't have all the trails that are out there on it. So you can't always determine where you are by looking at intersections on the map. My advice would be to have a GPX file that you can follow. Also, there is no signal up there so make sure you have all the digital information you need before you get up there. Even if you know your way to Georgetown start your GPS well before that. Otherwise you won't be able to search for the location. I made that mistake once.

    Scope trail forks. It's fairly easy to do pedal laps out there. You can climb fire road or Sand Mtn Boulevard. Both are chill and scenic.

    Here's some of my favorite no shuttle routes. Its about 3.5:1 climbing to descending, but I think its worth it. There's lots of these sort of loops with single track downhills and road climbs. You can shorten or lengthen this as you like.

    I can show you around if you'd like. Just give me a holler.
    Sometimes you eat the trail, sometimes the trail eats you.
