Pot Hollow  (Little Deer Creek Loop)
The Pot Hollow trail is a short singletrack descent from Pole Line Pass into the Little Deer Creek valley. Overall, it's intermediate technical, with a couple of short trickier downhill sections that are easy to walk for less-aggressive riders. It can be done as a shuttled downhill or as a loop ride. The loop ride is exactly 12 miles, with 2000 vertical feet of climbing. This breaks down to 7.3 miles of gravel road, 2 miles dirt road, and 2.6 miles of singletrack. Some riders may want to park at Cascade Springs and ride 2.5 miles up to the road fork, which would make the total ride 17 miles with 2700 feet climbing. To do the ride as a shuttle, drive the gravel road 220 to Pole Line Pass, then descend Pot Hollow and Little Deer Creek back to the fork in the road for a 4.7-mile ride that's all virtually all downhill.
