Trail shared by Jeff Williams

Nice open singletrack through hills and pine forests.

Description

Given the rolling incline of this trail and the scenery of the area, this trail is not to be missed! Hikers will pass impressive rock outcrops as the trail contours nicely through a forest of Ponderosa pine and Douglas-fir trees.

The trail itself also lends itself to a pleasant outing, as there are no major obstacles to distract you from your spectacular surroundings. Visitors will work their way through hillsides on fun twisting trails, with views unfolding around every corner.

Use this trail to access a variety of loops in the area including the long-distance Colorado Trail.

I enjoyed the trail but was constantly jumping out of the way for mountain bikers. It's much more popular as a bike area but the hiking was nice. Lots of pine beetle kill on the top of the ridges but makes for nice open views. Jun 19, 2018
