Looking past the stock pond down the canyon.

Wardsworth Creek Trail
This single-track trail follows Wardsworth Creek up a side canyon off the Right Fork of Hobble Creek. Most riders do the first 3 miles of trail, up to the meadow and stock pond, for a 6-mile out-and-back. Vertical rise is 1100 feet, most of it coming during the last 1-1/2 miles. Technical difficulty is intermediate overall, but there are multiple rocky, tricky creek crossings that can be challenging. The trail starts where the Right Fork Hobble Creek road turns from pavement to gravel. Initial altitude is 6000 feet.

There are no branching trails (until you reach the stock pond at the top), so navigation is easy. The lower portion is very smooth, but the trail gets steeper and a bit rougher in the second half.
At the top, the Dry Creek Canyon Cutoff Trail forks off at the stock pond. This is where most bikers make the turn-around, doing the trail as an out-and-back. If you want, you can continue 4 miles further on the main trail to Halls Fork Road. Or, you can fork left and curve around to descend the canyon just downhill from Wardsworth, completing a loop.
