    Looking for Little Creek

    So it looks interesting, but I have seen many different directions for Little Creek. We will be hitting up Gooseberry and wanted to compliment it with the lesser known cousin. I was wondering if somebody has links for GPS directions for the trail head and trail options. We will be out there the first weekend of April.

    Thanks for any help!

    We keep it on the move, never letting it stay more than a few nights in the same location.

    bankerboy, I don't know if you've already been down south yet, but I hit Gooseberry and Little Creek this past weekend. Little Creek is 99% dry with a bit of snow at the end of one of the loops as your 'climbing' back up to the parking area.

    We hooked up with Quinten at Over The Edge Sports right there in Hurricane. He does group rides on Saturdays and would probably be more than happy to take a group out to Little Creek. He's a great guy and will take you out on the shorter, more technical loop as opposed to the out loop with more dirt and single track.

    I took my 5 Spot and wish I had my Nomad as there are a lot of places to play out there and plenty of 1'-4' drops to flat (on slickrock) if you want to get your huck on. If you have a long travel bike, you can have a lot of fun. There is a lot of room to get lost out there, so be careful and watch for the cairns if you're doing the inner loop.

    Also, there is plenty of water now right near the parking area if you're taking dogs.

    This is why I like this forum

    Thanks for the heads up. We will be there the first weekend of April.

    Now if somebody would just break out the hair driers and clean up Thunder Mnt for me, I would be eternally greatful.

    Little Creek Photos

    Here are some shots of Little Creek from 3/8/08. Sorry, not much action here as we were rolling along trying to finish the ride before a thunderstorm rolled in and I was carrying the camera and wasn't terribly motivated to pull it out. But you get the idea.

    Quentin from OTE Sports attempting this piece on his new Ibis. It was more difficult than it looks.


    The other Ryan riding the waterfall. He did the entire ride on a fully rigid 29'er.


    The other Ryan, myself and Quentin waiting for the rest of the group. The storm was over Gooseberry Mesa in this photo.


    Exposure.


    Catherine crushing it.

    We saw you guys as we were leaving. Why did you wait so late to get started, I guess you did not see the weather forecast.

    We went out to Little Creek again this last Saturday. It was a little cold but most of the snow was gone.

    That's what happens when you're trying to round up a bunch of people. It was just supposed to be 5 of us and then someone decided to meet at OTE Sports in Hurricane. I didn't realize the owner was someone I've raced with in the past and we all decided to ride together as a big group. Kind of a quasi-reunion of sorts so we spent a great deal of time BS'ing and checking out the new store.

    It didn't start raining until we were back our vehicles, so it was all good.

    BTW, those Mojo's are very, very nice.

    That is probably the best map that I have seen. Only three or four trails/connectors missing.

    The written directions are a little harder to follow but I don't know how you could do better. In the last two years the trail has become a lot easier to follow due to the traffic.

    They just put up a street sign at the little creek turn off(off of the highway) so now its alot easier to find which road to turn on.

    Thank You All!!!!

    Just got back yesterday. We had a rocking time out in the St George area. Very beautiful. Many more colors than here in San Diego. I downloaded the maps to Little Creek and rode it all. There is some impressive trail work out there. The two rock bridges out towards the end of the out and back trail (magic carpet ride??) were hairy but fun. Not many places here where you can test your balance over a 300 foot drop! The water fall was a bit too intimidating to ride up but other than that, we did everything. The grand loop was our secondary piece but all I can say is WOW. Now who got out there with the dye and made all those colors on the rocks. Where I come from, rocks are brown or grey. Purples, whites, pinks. WOW

    Thank you to all who chipped in with info and made this trip great!
