The Hogan Loop climbs Elk Creek Trail, then joins Road 1295 for 1/2mi, descends Hogan Creek Trail then follows Trail Creek Road to complete the loop. This loop is about 11 miles and has 1100' of vertical. Ride this loop in either direction, but know that Hogan Creek Trail is steep.

CDT to Elk Creek is the other loop and is 20 miles with about 2000' of vertical. This loop seems best to ride Trail Creek Road first, as a warmup, to Gibbons Pass. Then join the Continental Divide Trail and finish by heading down Elk Creek Trail.

All of these trails were clear of deadfall with the exception of the mile long section of trail connecting the CDT to Elk Creek Trail.
