For an advanced biker, this is a perfect trail. In order to follow this route, a good physical condition is required because of the long steep climbs. Once you reach the top of Basalt Peak at 6000 ft/1828 m, the views are unbelievable and the downhill, lots of fun. Rock Creek Area Trail is a must for those who take mountain bike seriously.
