A long fairly easy ride offering views and wildlife viewing.
From Birch Creek road turn left on Mule creed after the Dinner Station Campground, this road will take you to the trailhead for Minneopa Lake. From Minneopa go past Boatman's Lake to Estler Lake, across the Dam and up to Rattlesnake creek. From there continue past Red Butte to French Creek Thief Creek Road. Then climb on this road (you will notice active gold mines off of this road). Then you have a great descent from the divide steeply dawn Thief Creek Road and back to the Ranger station.
How to get there:
From the Interstate 15 at Apex North of Dillon fallow Birch Creek road to CCC (Camp/Thief turnoff). Fallow Thief Creek for 400M from Birch Creek to the Cabin.
Starting elevation is 6,400 and can climb trails up to 10,000 feet. So have fun and breath hard.
