“Smooth singletrack through pine forests with a variety of unique rock outcroppings.”— Jeff Williams
Take Tramway #723 up towards Gashouse Gulch #726. You'll pass one dirt road, continue on the Tramway until you hit another dirt road after about 8 miles. Take a right, and follow for a very short distance. Gashouse Gulch #726 will be on your left.
You'll make a loop out of the Gashouse Gulch #726 and the Baldy Trail #727. Stay on Gashouse Gulch #726 for about 3.5 miles until you hit the Baldy Trail #727. You'll be on the Baldy Trail #727 for a little over 3 miles. For the descent, head back down the Baldy Trail #727 back to the road and the start of the Gashouse Gulch #726.
From here, you'll start in on your second loop. Head left on the road towards the Morrison Creek #724, which will be on the right. Stay on the Morrison Creek #724 until it meets up with the Shinglemill Trail #725 after about 2.5 miles.
This is a fun trail winding through sandstone boulders and hillsides. Stay right on Shinglemill Trail #725 and follow that back to the Colorado Trail.
Keep left on the Colorado Trail for about 2.25 miles to head back to the parking lot.
