Description

Starting from the trail's northern trailhead, follow the trail through the first meadow on a mellow climb to the first intersection. At this intersection, you'll meet Groovy Uvi on the right. Take the left split to continue on Soda Creek Trail. Minutes after this intersection, you'll meet two more trails with no names (both on the left). Continue along Soda Creek, straight through the fence opening.

Eventually, you'll enter the forest and cross a small creek. Continue up the trail as it climbs gradually to the other side of Groovy Uvi. You can take this trail back to the beginning, or continue on Soda Creek south. From here, Soda Creek heads off to the left and hits yet another intersection. Follow Soda Creek to the right and head down the hill.

You'll then pass through a beautiful meadow and onto a wooden bridge across a marshy section, and up a slightly steeper hill. After the hill, you'll encounter another rolling section back down through the meadow and past three more intersections with trails that head off to the right. Continue on Soda Creek until you reach the Keystone Ranch where Soda Creek Trail ends and Soda Ridge Trail begins. From here turn around and return the way you came, if so inclined...

They just reworked the singletrack portion of this trail this past summer, can you spot the border collie?
