The Quartz Creek Trail is on our return to ride list. It is very beautiful ascending through amazing old growth stands. We were unable to finish this trail due to the tangle of downed giant trees.

The trail was an impassable tangle of giant fallen trees and we couldn’t even find the trail on foot. Even after a peanut butter energy bomb it was impassable so we turned around and enjoyed the descent from the day’s climb.
