Cove Creek To Daniel Ridge


Approximately 10 miles
2.5+ Hours

This mountain bike ride is a great step up for intermediate level riders and consists of a mellow climb up Cove Creek Trail with a few stream crossings, then a traverse across to Daniel Ridge on an old jeep road that has grown into single-track. The descent down Daniel Ridge follows the creek, and there is a good swimming hole down there.
