    Western Deep creek loop

    ...in telluride. Sounds tough with the hike abike sections, but riding across the steep slopes of mount sneffels sounds tempting.

    Does anybody know about this trail?

    I rode it last week and it's a great trail in great condition right now.

    On the far western part of Deep Creek Trail, is there any indication of when you are crossing over into the Wilderness area?

    I wouldn't want to go where I'm not supposed to...

    It is very well signed, you will have no worries. Telluride does not lack in effort of directing bikers where to go.

    A+

    It is a way cool trail. Definately took some work for a flat lander but paid off nicely. I rode it from the airport side back to town and hooked up with Mill Creek (?) I think. Great riding.

    I ride some part of deep creek every week. The best way in my opinion is to ride eider up(stay on old trail) then ride deep to the left(west). Once you hit the the old road go left. Instead of decending down deep creek to the parking lot go left onto Penelope cruise trail. Its a small climb to a killer down hill. It does not go through wilderness area(wilderness starts around 700 vert above the trail

    No wilderness, but it is private land. go to the parking lot.
