Freeman Creek Trail

Trail Overview

The Freeman Creek trail is ridden as an out-and-back , typically as a bonus ride with a shuttle, descending and climbing approximately 1,400' in seven miles with a moderately steep, consistent climb. The trail is not as technical as Nelson, but it has a lot of water bars and was recently renovated.

Typical ride time with shuttle: 2.5 to 4+ hours

Trail Description

The Freeman Creek trail is frequently added to a Nelson shuttle as a crossy-country out-and-back, starting just above Quaking Aspen Campground on the North Road to Jordan Peak and descending to the George Bush Sequoia Tree. The top of the trail begins with a re-route extension, crosses a new bridge and then rolls up-and-down through a sequoia grove and along a meadow. There are some rocky, technical sections, but the trail is predominantly smooth with lots of turns and a waterbar around every corner.
After crossing the third new bridge, the trail ends at the George Bush tree. This location is a good resting and refueling spot before turning around and pedaling back up the trail. When combined with a Nelson shuttle, this is a two-down, for one-up delight!
