Mountain Biking — Tea Creek / Slatyfork


This is a regional/national destination for Mt. Biking. 5400 acres with 45 miles of trails provides a lot of trails for its size. A wide range of difficulty from easier to very technical is found here. Most of the trails create good loops. Props Run Trail – north of Tea Creek – is one of the best downhill rides in the state. Trail Map Link (Highlands Conservancy)
