Second "warm-weather" trip to JH, and decided to try some "real" mountain biking, i.e. rented bikes at Hoback Sports, and headed to the Cache Creek Trail head on the south-east end of town. A friend had told us this would be a good place to start, as the main trail is fairly wide most of the way, not too steep, and very scenic. My husband and I are avid road cyclists, but still found the trek to the 4-mile mark challenging. Lots of rocks to avoid, some quite steep bits, hot weather (about 80 degrees F), but through lovely woods, often skirting the beautiful creek. We were passed by about a half dozen more experienced bikers who took off along various side tracks - were glad to see that all walked up parts of their trails before disappearing from view amongst the trees! Ate a picnic lunch on a small wooden bridge spanning the creek on the way down, then took off on some narrow side tracks (though within sight of the main trail). Coming down was a blast, but take care on narrow, windy sections with significant drop-offs to one side. Will definitely try this again!
